We wouldn’t exactly call Grace Digital’s latest Internet radio a technical wonder, but where there is a problem there is a product.  The GDI-IR2550p is the first and only tabletop radio that incorporates all the Pandora controls into its front panel, which includes not only a thumb up/down button but a play/pause button.

We’re currently testing out an earlier model of Grace’s Internet radio and we can tell you that the screen’s size is so darn small it makes the device almost useless.  That is of course after putting aside the so-so sound quality.  Fortunately, there is an accompanying free iPhone app that connects to the last used Grace Digital radio that provides a much more tolerable UI experience.

Amazon has it for $149.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
