Best Buy Launches Insignia Infocast
Best Buy this week launched the Insignia Infocast, a small, WiFi-enabled Internet media display which can access web content from such sites as Facebook, Pandora, the Weather Channel and more.
The Infocast, with an eight-inch screen, can access up to 1,500 applications via Chumby Industries. It retails for $169.99 and is available now, as a direct competitor of Sony's Dash.
"With its fast processor, vibrant display and enhanced audio, the Insignia Infocast realizes the founding premise of the Internet Media Display Category -- technology that moves with the broadcast speed of online information, from breaking news to stock quotes and social networking posts," Fernando Silva, vice president of exclusive brands for Best Buy, said as part of the announcement.
