BBC looks to develop radio device for iPods

The BBC is reportedly in talks with technology companies to develop an add-on digital radio device for iPods and MP3 players. While the BBC has yet to confirm compatible devices, The Scotsman reports that the iPod is understood to be one. The newspaper said the device would be “a small tube containing a DAB digital radio chip that clips on to an MP3 player.” Simon Nelson, controller of radio and music interactive at the BBC, commented that the broadcaster needs to “ensure there are devices that can enable people to listen to radio—especially on something they already carry around.”
