Pure launch eagerly-anticipated Pocket handheld DAB digital radio

Pure's first handheld DAB digital radio is here - well, almost. Launched today, the DAB radio is yet to hit the high street: potential buyers have until May to wait, before the handheld becomes available.

The new radio, which carries a price tag of GBP169.99, offers Band III DAB reception and an incredible 16 hours of use on one set of 3 AA batteries. Housed in an anodised aluminium case, the PocketDAB™ 1000's features include Equaliser sound settings and station list ordering.

A cool blue backlight lights up a 16 x 2 character scrolling matrix display, with icons for volume level, battery life expenditure, clock and favourites ordering mode, Equaliser sound setting mode and signal strength indicator.

The dual line display carries programme and station information. The headphone cable acts as the aerial, which means the pocket radio does away with the need for an obtrusive extending aerial.

Pocket DAB - just not pocketable quite yet: you'll have to wait until May for this one

The radio also lets the listener store stations in memory and a keypad lock prevents accidental switching of stations whilst on the move.

The PocketDAB™'s central 'joypad' acts both as a volume control (up and down) and as a means of accessing menu selections (left and right).
