Revo "Pico", il DAB+ quasi portatile

Ricevo da David Baxter, direttore della scozzese Revo, l'annuncio relativo alla disponibilità del nuovo modello di ricevitore DAB/DAB+ e Wi-Fi (Internet Radio), Pico RadioStation. A differenza del precedente Blik RadioStation, concepita come modello da tavolo, Pico viene definita "altamente portatile". Non vedo maniglie, ma in compenso il piccolo parallelepipedo è più piccolo e maneggevole. Ed è dotato di batteria al litio ricaricabile. Il prezzo suggerito non è leggerissimo, 170 sterline. Non si può avere tutto.

Revo Announce World’s First Portable ‘Hybrid’ DAB/DAB+ and Wi-Fi Internet Radio

Lanark, 14th August 2008: Revo Technologies Ltd is pleased to announce the release of the world’s first portable ‘hybrid’ DAB/DAB+ and internet radio.
PICO RadioStation follows in the steps of the company’s ground-breaking BLIK RadioStation model, by combining DAB and DAB+ reception with the latest wi-fi internet radio technology. In PICO’s case however, these features and benefits are now available in a compact, highly portable form factor, rather than in a traditional table radio format.
PICO’s acclaimed industrial design is the proud recipient of both Red Dot and iF Product Design awards for 2008.
Thanks to its splashproof construction and 12 hour lithium-ion rechargeable battery, PICO RadioStation can be used just about anywhere, as happy in a bedroom or steamy bathroom as it is in the garage or garden.
PICO RadioStation features full DAB and DAB+ digital radio reception, FM radio coverage with RDS, Wi-Fi internet radio (easy access to over 11,000 stations from around the world), wireless MP3 media streaming from PC or Mac, and the ability to serve as a portable sound system for any MP3 player.
PICO RadioStation is one of only two commercially available digital radios (the other one being REVO’s BLIK RadioStation model) that are ready to receive next-generation DAB+ broadcasts without the necessity for paid-for software upgrades or downloads.
PICO RadioStation is the result of a long and fruitful collaboration between Revo Technologies and Frontier Silicon, the industry leader in digital radio technology. At the heart of PICO RadioStation is Frontier Silicon’s new multi-standard Venice 6 module.
PICO RadioStation has an SRP of £169.95 and will be available from the 15th of September from the usual REVO retailers, or alternatively directly from www.revo.co.uk
REVO will be demonstrating PICO RadioStation and other new products at the IFA Consumer Electronics Fair in Berlin from the 29th of August until the 3rd of September. REVO are situated in Hall 15.1, stand 112.
