HD Radio portable player
At the 2009 CES in the HD Radio display, there was a demonstration of the smallest application of an HD Radio chip in the form of the KRI Armband Portable HD Radio Receiver. What is basically a portable HD Radio device with MP3 playback capabilities shows the evolution of HD Radio as it can be packaged into ever smaller devices.
The device also has the capability of playing back digital music files stored on a microSD card via the compatible slot and can record content as well, though no further information is known about that functionality. There is no word on when the KRI Armband Portable will come to market or how much it will cost. [via OrbitCast]
