Sony Gets Behind HD Radio
Great news for the radio industry and its efforts to make HD Radio the
new standard in audio broadcasting. Sony has announced that it will be
shipping a bunch of HD Radios this year. The first model out the chute,
in July, is this table top radio, which will retail for $200. You can pre-order one here.
To quote Mick Jagger:

Gizmodo has the whole story.
I’ve said before on this blog that this is the year HD technology starts to show up in many of the new radios and this news from Sony certainly points in that direction.
Full Disclosure for those that don’t already know – I’ve been an
investor in and director of iBiquity since 1999. iBiquity is the
developer and licensor of HD Radio.
