Roberts’ Robi is but a week away from launch but now we have news of another iPod dabber. No, not a tune-playing bingo pen, but this iDab plug-in adaptor.Unlike the in-wire Robi, the iDAB slots directly into your iPod’s bum, serving up a digital enema of sport talk and tunes from the likes of 6 Music et al.It gets a larger screen for station info and scrolling text and, cunningly, also has an iPod dock connector on its base so it can be slotted directly into speakers for room-filling radio. You’ll still need the earphones plugged in, mind – they double up as the antenna.And, in case you’re wondering, the controls are all on the side. We wouldn’t want any buttons ruining those smooth lines now, would we?Essentials Intempo iDab Price: £60 On sale: December Contact: Intempo Related stories: Pure takes DAB on the road Roberts robi makes iPod a DAB hand Intempo RDI-03 debuts iPod dock-and-DAB
