Olympus Radio Server

Best known for its cameras, Olympus today unveiled the VJ-10 Radio Server. The compact device translates the design philosophy of PVRs to sound by storing audio on 37GB of free hard drive space, leaving room for up to 2500 hours of timeshifted FM radio. The storage is enough that up to 20 shows can be scheduled for recording in advance -- no matter how long they may be, Olympus says. A 3.9-inch LCD helps manage recordings on the unit itself, but a USB connection is available to transfer shows to a PC or to upload existing MP3 and WMA audio clips to the Radio Server.

The standard version is due on March 16th in Japan for $335. A special model, the VJ-10-JA, is following on April 1st preloaded with six months of NHK's English instruction radio shows for those eager to learn the Western language.
