Com One shows off Phoenix IP Radio

The WiFi radio market is an increasingly crowded one, but there's always room for one more if the specs are right, and Com One seems to have a decent offering in this new Phoenix IP Radio. Of course, the basic thrust of the device is PC-free internet radio, and the Phoenix delivers that just fine with its 802.11b/g WiFi, a 128 x 64 6-line display and cute little speakers. Luckily, the fun doesn't end there: the Linux-based player can manage MP3 playback off of its USB port, and can even be set up for podcasts via its web control panel -- not quite as exciting as, say, the Roku SoundBridge, but pretty good all the same. There are also 4 rechargeable batteries included for making this thing portable, if that's your style. No word on price, but we should be seeing more of this thing at CES 2007. A few live shots after the break.
