Now back to the tablet.

For quick drawings that need to be shared, this is a good tool to easily uploada sketch to your sales team or corporate office.

To access the stations, you just tune in; there are no antennas required for reception.And you can also pick up podcasts to play them on the radio as well.
There are a number of preset stations already programmed on the radio and you can add more by going to wifi-radio.biz.

It is small (8.5 inch by 4.8 inch), lightweight (less then two pounds), portable and comes with rechargeable AA batteries (four hours life).
If you want to amp up the sound, you can also hook this up to some external speakers ora sound system.
