Intempo turns iPods into DAB radios

£60 iDAB launching in December

Intempo has launched a new iPod add-on that gives users of Apple's music and video players crystal-clear digital radio.

iDAB (£59.99) is a tiny digital radio that's equipped with an Apple iPod dock connector. Users can click it onto the base of their iPod to listen to digital radio while on the move, but the device will also connect to and dock-equipped iPod speaker, instantly transforming that system into a DAB radio.

The device is less than 40mm square. Play, search and scrolling for stations are all controlled by the side buttons on the device and the four line LCD screen displays information such as radio station or song details. Ten presets are also included to save favourite stations.

iDAB is scheduled to reach high street electronics stores in the UK in December, just in time for Christmas. It will be made available in a range of iPod-matching colours.

Intempo's marketing manager, Katie Richards, said: "Intempo was the first to converge iPod speaker-docks with digital radio with its RDI and the iDAB continues this trend; being the only DAB accessory currently on the market with dual iPod and dock functionality."
