The P8Z from Chinon is an alarm clock, calendar, digital picture frame, audiobook player, and more. In addition to the digital FM radio (with 30 presets) you expect with an alarm clock, the P8Z can play music or audiobooks from an SD/MS/MMC card inserted into the 3-in-1 card reader. The 3.5″, full-color, high-resolution screen that displays the clock functions can also display a slideshow with 3D transitions, looping, and music using pictures and music files from your SD card. You can even dock an iPod and playback music and videos stored on it. With a WiFi-connect iPod touch, you can stream web video to the screen. The P8Z has a black, rubberized finish to prevent fingerprints. It comes with an AC adapter, and it uses 2 AAA batteries for backup. It’s $59.99 at Chinon.
