Get ready, 2010 might just end up being the year of HD radio. Rumor is that we’re going to see something like eight new portable HD radio devices at CES this January.
Now, we saw some HD radio devices last year at CES too, but this time they think you’ll really REALLY like them. HD radio seems to have an awareness problem, honestly. The HD radio manufacturers want you to buy their devices this time, and the hope is that by targeting the Zune/iPod crowd by coming up with add-ons, you’ll bite. We should also start seeing some headphone based units as well, and some are even going to include HD AM as well.
You can get HD radio receivers currently in the Zune HD, from The Shack, and Best Buy even has their own headphone style unit already on the market.
