San Diego - Grace Digital, which offers a wide
selection of home and portable Internet radios, added to its selection with a
tabletop model

promoted as offering full control over Pandora Internet radio functions.


The Wi-Fi-equipped GDI-IR2550p at
an everyday $169 "incorporates the same features that Pandora listeners use on
computers and smart phones," the company said. Those functions include
one-button access to Pandora's thumbs
up/down feature, skip, play, pause, and bookmarking songs directly from the
radio's remote, its front-panel controls, and an iPod/iPhone app.

The radio also streams audio from
more than 50,000 radio stations, podcasts, and on-demand content providers.
Content providers include NPR, FOX News, CNN, BBC, CBS, iheartradio, NOAA
Weather Reports, Live365, KROQ, and Sirius Premium Internet radio. The device
also streams music from a networked PC.

The GDI-IR2550p is available on Grace's website and

AC/DC model. Those and most other Grace Internet radios stream Pandora but
