First International Digital Inc. (FID) on Monday announced the release of two new FM transmitters in its Beamit line; they are compatible with any MP3 player, including the iPod. The 440FM and 450FM both broadcast music to an FM radio station 10 to 30 feet away and plug into a car’s 12-volt cigarette lighter, but the former offers 12 channels of digital tuning while the latter features 100 channels. The 450FM can also receive power from a AAA battery.
Suggested retail pricing is US$29.99 for the 440FM and $39.99 for the 450FM. As MacCentral posted this article, FID had not updated its irock.com Web site with information about the new transmitters.
