NEWS: Add DAB/FM radio to your iPod with a 'robi' from Roberts

Got an iPod and want to be able to listen to digital radio as well? This nifty little device from Roberts, purveyor of fine radios to Her Majesty, just arrived in our postbag this morning.

The 'robi' is a DAB/FM radio that plugs into an iPod and enables you to listen to all the digital and FM stations in your area.

The wired remote also allows you to control music playback, adjust volume and skip forwards/back within a playlist.

The robi is powered by the iPod, so you don't need extra batteries. It costs £50, and works with all the new iPods, including the nano and Touch. We'll test it soon.
