North Ryde, NSW, Australia - Sep 6, 2012 - At the digital radio third birthday bash, Radioinfo (Australia) was shown a demonstration of new devices that allow iPhone users to turn their phones in to FM and DAB+ receivers. The accessory, called iMini and offered by Lingo, consists of a module that plugs in to the bottom socket, using headphones as the antenna, as well as an app that controls station selection and displays the station's slideshow. Another model is an integrated battery pack case, called iRis.

The device is the only DAB+ receiver so far to have passed iPhone's accessory power requirements. The integrated radio receiver and battery pack have a1500mAh lithium-ion battery to supplement the life of the phone battery.

The accessory is well under the critical $100 price point, selling for AUD$79 (Australian). More info:
