Chumby One

 

With an adorable name like Chumby One, how could you not fall in love with this tiny touch screen Wi-Fi-enabled alarm clock? Let us count the ways. First of all, at $119.95 (direct), it's overpriced. It streams audio via Wi-Fi, but the Chumby's...

Touch screen. Streams Internet radio and programs like Pandora. Decent file support

Touch screen is not very responsive. Useful widgets are few and far-between. Built-in speakers are weak. No Aux input. No audio-out jack

Stick with your old-school alarm clock to wake up and your computer or smartphone for portable entertainment—the Chumby One is underachieving and overpriced.

Chumby One

The Chumby One is a fun and adaptable way to bring bite-size Web apps and streaming Internet radio to any corner of your home or office.

The Chumby One doesn't excel at any particular feature; its design feels toylike; and the optional battery pack lasts only 1 hour.

It's hard to say if the Chumby One works better as an alarm clock, a photo frame, a news reader, or as an Internet radio, but for around $100, it's a great value in any incarnation.

Review: Chumby One Wi-Fi Information Appliance

 

Yes, it has a clock and a radio, but don't call the Wi-Fi-enabled Chumby One a clock radio: It's much, much more.

More compact shape than original model; lower price; now includes an FM radio and a volume knob

FM radio reception, even with wire antenna, is poor; few controls make changing settings cumbersome; occasionally lost Wi-Fi connection

Perhaps the people at Chumby Industries were simply tired of the question "What is it?" For the Chumby One, thelatest incarnation, they added an FM radio and the matter was settled: it's a clock radio.

Chumby One Review: Totally Frivolous, But Totally Adorable

 

The new Chumby One model ditches the old beanbag casing for a retro TV–inspired look and slashes the price, though the internals are unchanged. ...
