Intempo's New Portable Internet Radio: The Daisy
We have noticed over the past six months or so the increase in companies releasing Internet radio devices and the latest one we have come across is from a company called Intempo
. The Daisy
is their latest Internet radio to hit the market and it wants to be your portable Internet radio that you can take anywhere. They claim access to thousands of streaming radio stations as well as standard FM radio so you can get your fix of standard terrestrial streaming radio, commercials and all. They claim up to 20 hours of battery life which makes this a great device to have with you in the backyard as you work on your garden or just sip some wine and enjoy the spring weather.
This should be for sale any day now. After all the bad forecasts it looks like Internet radio is still holding on. We love the addition of another device into the mix, especially one that claims use so little power. We hate buying devices that need to be recharged every day. With 20 hours listen time before a recharge you shouldn't have to be plugging this into the recharger too often( unless you decide to go on some wireless remote radio listening binge ). We'll keep you posted on launch date, but be aware that this is slated to retail for just shy of $300. So while it has a lot going for it you really need to love Internet radio and love it wherever you are. Three hundred bucks is pretty steep for a fairly basic radio streamer.
