Aireo 2 from SoniqCast LLC is the first digital music player to feature an integrated Wi-Fi module.
This means that users get wireless broadband connectivity to their computer network, and the Internet, to download music, news, weather, finance, and sports. The device also integrates a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot locator.
It also features an FM transceiver — so users can listen to FM radio and also transmit music from the device to other compatible hardware. Because of the ability of the player to transmit music on a radio frequency it is unlikely to be available in the U.K., as that feature would make the device illegal in that country.
The Aireo 2 features a USB 2.0 connection and two audio-out jacks (so two people can listen to the music). It has a 2.3-inch LED display and supports MP3, WAV and WMA formats, but not Apple’s AAC.
