New Pico WiFi radio from Revo
Revo Technologies, the Scottish digital radio designer, has announced a new addition to its popular Pico portable radio family. Pico Wi-Fi is the world’s first self-powered internet radio, capable of receiving over 5,500 radio stations from around the world.
Thanks to its splashproof design and integral rechargeable battery, Pico Wi-Fi can be used indoors or outdoors – as happy in a bathroom or garden as it is in a kitchen or bedroom. Pico Wi-Fi also doubles as a high-quality portable loudspeaker system for your iPod (or other MP3 device). Simply plug your iPod® into Pico’s M-Port using the connection cable supplied, for instant cordless music on the move.
Pico Wi-Fi is capable of accessing over 5,500 internet radio stations from all over the world. Listen to Samba from Brazil’s Radio Caraibas, New Orleans Jazz from WWOZ or even live baseball from New York on WFAN 660. All that’s required is a Wi-Fi internet connection, and a world of radio choice is yours. Pico Wi-Fi also allows the user to access ‘Listen Again’ services such as those operated by the BBC, and even wirelessly stream MP3 music from a
PC or Apple Mac.
Pico Wi-Fi links to any broadband Wi-Fi connection to stream both live and “Listen Again” internet radio broadcasts. Stations are listed alphabetically by country or music type, making selection simple – and Pico’s portable design means that it can be used wherever you have a Wi-Fi connection. Additionally, Pico allows you to play music files stored on any Wi-Fi enabled PC or Apple Mac in your home.
