PURE Celebrates Market Entry With Promotional Product Pricing
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - In perfect time for the holidays, PURE, the global leader in digital and internet-connected radios, today announced that three of its highly anticipated products are now available for purchase through PURE.com, with the added incentive of a 15% discount and free shipping on all orders placed before December 20, 20101.
Previewed during the company launch at CES 2010, PURE's EVOKE Flow, Oasis Flow and Siesta Flow connected radios transform how consumers access, store, share and interact with audio entertainment such as internet radio, podcasts, FM broadcast and music streamed from a personal computer.
"We are thrilled to offer consumers an easy way to obtain audio content from a variety of sources, with an emphasis on quality of sound and design," said Charles Bellfield, general manager for PURE North America. "Our intuitive home audio devices offer five search fields to help consumers find exactly the content they want from all over the world, according to their preferences. These products are just the beginning of a wide range of solutions we will bring to North America in the months to come that will personalize home entertainment."
Winner of more than 30 awards, PURE's EVOKE Flow was the first truly connected portable radio. Made of the same polished and lacquered wood as a grand piano with a three-inch speaker, the EVOKE Flow delivers stunning sound quality. The optional ChargePAK battery makes this device eminently portable, while inputs for an iPod® and additional speaker customize the user experience. EVOKE Flow is at home in any room in the house -- from the bedroom with its SnoozeHandle™ alarm bar and auto-dimming display, to the family room with its touch-sensitive controls and eye-catching retro design.
A stylish weatherproof, splash resistant case, rubber seals and a cast aluminum framework combine to make Oasis Flow the most rugged, internet-connected radio on the market. The perfect radio for anyone who wants to stay connected while working or playing outdoors or in moist environments like the bathroom, Oasis Flow features a built-in rechargeable ChargePAK battery and iPod input for up to 10 hours of continuous portable listening between charges.
The connected-consumer's alarm clock, Siesta Flow brings the power of internet radio to the bedside. Small and sleek enough to fit any bedroom space, Siesta Flow also provides access to 365 unique alarm tones -- one for every day of the year. In addition to a large auto-dimming display and touch sensitive controls, there are also four quick-set alarms, a selection of ambient sounds to go to sleep to, plus a unique PowerPort™ for USB accessories such as standard USB chargers for mobile phones, reading lights and bedside fans.
Pricing and availability
The EVOKE Flow, Oasis Flow and Siesta Flow are all currently available for purchase via www.PURE.com/us/store for respective MSRPs of $229, $249 and $109. Additionally as a special offer, PURE will be giving a 15% discount to North American customers that place an order before December 20.

All PURE products have access to PURE's proprietary radio and media portal, the PURE Lounge (www.thelounge.com), enabling users to organize their favorite stations into shared folders and automatically synchronize content choices on both the radio and the online portal.
