Com One intros WiFi radio, Bluetooth speakers and headset


Wireless-happy Com One looks to be doing its best to cover the two big wireless fronts at CES this week, trotting out its previously announced WiFi-based Phoenix radio (now in black) alongside a set of Bluetooth-based speakers and a new Bluetooth headset. The retro-styled Phoenix radio will let you pick up Internet radio stations or podcasts from anywhere with a WiFi signal, as well as play MP3s or WMAs from an attached USB drive or MP3 player -- no memory card slots though. Phoenix's own "Phoenix Service" will also let you check the news and weather forecast before you roll out of bed. On the Bluetooth front, the descriptively-named Bluetooth Multimedia 2.1 Speakers will let you pump tunes from any audio source with a 3.5 mm or RCA audio output to the pint-sized speakers with one less wire, while the company's Mic Clip Bluetooth Stereo Headset will give you some A2DP goodness and an embedded microphone so you can go hands-free. There doesn't appear to be any word on pricing or availability for the Bluetooth accessories just yet, but the Phoenix WiFi radio is available now for $249.
