    View Quest Portable WiFi Internet Radio

    Billed as “the first truly portable internet radio on the market,” View Quest’s WIFI200 lets you listen to over 12,000 radio stations and 7,000 podcasts, wherever you can get WiFi.  The wallet-sized radio won an International Forum Design Award.

    View Quest Portable WiFi Internet RadioTo use the WIFI200, you simply connect to your wireless network. You can just start listening if your network is unprotected. If it’s protected, you enter your password the first time you use the radio and it will remember it.

    A scroll wheel and an LED-lit screen allow you to search by country or genre. Sound comes out of a single speaker, like the transistor radios of days gone by, but it also has a stereo headphone jack. A single charge of its built-in Li-Ion battery should get you about 15 hours of usage.

    The View Quest website lists mostly Euorpean dealers, so it’s hard to say if this item is available to the Western or Southern hemispheres. The average price is around £80, or about US$118.
