Belkin unveils TuneCast 3
Belkin today unveiled TuneCast 3 (site not updated), a universal FM transmitter that lets users listen to music and movies through any FM stereo receiver. A status indicator informs users when memory presets are saved, when the device is processing a request, and when it is powering on or off. The TuneCast 3 streams audio from any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack, such as Apple's iPod or any laptop system. TuneCast 3 features 20 hours of battery life, cable management, and a sleek new design. The device transmits on FM channels 88.1MHz to 107.9MHz with 2 memory presets, and includes a power cord for battery-free operation. TuneCast 3 will ship with a mounting clip in November in North America for $50, with launches in Asia, Europe, and Australia to follow, according to Belkin.
