It features a 2.4" color display to browse your music library and online content and allows you to view photos from Flickr or display/update your Facebook page.

I went into FutureShop yesterday and skimmed over the open box table and found a rejected Squeezebox Radio for $130! Being a nice guy I just had to give it a good home.

I bought this as a gift for my Mom. It's perfect for someone who wants to listen to Internet radio without any technical barriers or complications. It combines the simplicity of the classic radio, with the amazing awesomeness that is the Internet.
