Thanko has released info about their newest attempt at creating a USB Radio. As you can tell, this time around, they at least have a better looking design, with a sleek white finish. The USB AM/FM Radio is considerably larg as peripherals go, but the quality and performance prove to be worth the size.
Its external antennae, which is visually much taller than the radio itself, should offer a far improved signal strength. The radio also allows you to record live radio in either WAV or WMA formats. The images provided from Thanko are pretty uninformative though, considering the radio is solely for use with Windows OS, not compatible with Mac OS X at all. Pair this radio up with the MP3 Watch, also from Thanko, and you’ll be jamming in no time.
