Pure pushes PocketDAB sound, battery life

Updated model offers FM tuner, Sennheiser 'phones

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Pure has updated its PocketDAB portable digital radio, boosting the battery life, trimming the weight and adding an FM tuner for good measure and overseas jaunts. Oh, and it's now available in rather more tasty black attire.

The PocketDAB 1500 retails for around £90 inc. VAT. That buys you not only the player but a set of Sennheiser MC300 earphones, which should make for better-sounding audio than the previous model's no-name 'phones could deliver. The earphones cable acts as the radio's antenna, both for the digital tuner and the new FM job - which features RDS station identification, by the way.

The latter's handy should you find yourself abroad, Pure said, but we'd suggest it's also useful for picking up the many UK stations that have yet to begin broadcasting on DAB.

The new model weighs 123g and eschews its predecessor's AA batteries for a recheargeable unit that ups the single-charge playback time from 18 hours to 24.

The PocketDAB 1500 is available now. ®
