Turning its design skills to those who can go without digital music, Sony today quietly launched its ICF-M55 radio. The AM/FM device is just smaller than most user's hands and is designed to be fully totable thanks to a speaker that covers nearly all the front face, an internal battery for listening away from an outlet, and a headphone jack for private listening. A collapsible antenna tucks directly behind the radio to boost reception without easily falling off.
Sony makes the radio available today in Japan in pink; battery life, price, and other color options are currently unknown. [via Akihabara]
