The Grace Digital product line is adding WeatherBug and on-demand music service Rhapsody this year. It already includes Internet radio content from Pandora, Sirius XM, CBS, iheartradio, Live365.com, MP3Tunes, NPR and the National Weather Service.

Mondo, shown, is a bedside Internet radio with a 3.5-inch color display while the Solo Touch, big brother to Grace’s original Solo Wi-Fi Internet Tuner, features a 4.3-inch touch screen color display. The Bravado has been updated with a 2.7-inch color display and stereo speakers.

Grace Digital Audio’s Chief Marketing Officer Greg Fadul says in addition to Internet-only stations, Grace radios play streams from most AM/FM and HD Radio broadcasters.
