August: Coby HDR-700 portable HD Radio


HD Radio is still around, for some reason, but at least there’s a portable unit on the way. This August, for the low, low price of $150, you could buy the COBY HDR-700, a rather squarish-looking portable HD Radio. The batteries last about five hours, and the whole thing is enclosed in a splash-proof housing. You know, for all those trips to the beach you take.

In all fairness, it’s about times there’s a portable HD Radio. Now all they have to do is convince people to ditch their iPod and they’re golden.

Remember: the “HD” in “HD Radio” doesn’t stand for high-definition. Don’t be fooled by its silly marketing.
