Since August 6 2009, the only in-car Digital (DAB+) Radio has been the Pure Highway. Not a bad radio, but pricey.
Late last year an in built car radio from BlueState (Developed in Malta) was announced, and should hit our shores very soon.
This morning however, the first pictures of another likely DAB+ candidate emerged, similar in concept to the Pure Highway, this one appears to be coming from OXX – the makers of the OXX Classic and Vantage.
UPDATE: My information is that this new unit will hit retail at under $200 – great news.

As you can see, screen mounted like the PURE Highway however it seems a little smaller.
The Bluestate model due this year is the favoured model for people with the ability to do a radio swap (sadly, many new cars don’t have suitable interchangable radios)
It’s good to see more models coming to market, that will be good for Price competitiveness and also the general take-up of DAB Radio.
