Freecom readies Wi-Fi radio with MP3, RSS streaming

updated 01:05 pm EDT, Fri July 13, 2007

Freecom MusicPal

Freecom today expanded the concept of Internet-connected stereos with the MusicPal. Capable of playing MP3 and WAV tracks either stored on a nearby PC or streaming through an Internet radio station, the device also incorporates RSS feed support: owners can catch up on news, personal blogs, or other sites that push out live updates through the subscription model. RSS can run along the bottom of the screen while track data for music remains up top, Freecom says. Internet access is provided wirelessly through 802.11g or through Ethernet for those with free ports. An alarm clock function lets owners wake up to their choice of music.

Loaded with ports for both headphones and RCA stereos, Freecom's radio is scheduled to ship in Europe for 129 Euros ($178) sometime during August but is up for pre-order as of today. A version for North American countries is unmentioned and so far unlikely to appear. [via reader Jeroen]
