    "Coming in early November we’ll get a chance to check out a brand new version: the chumby one clock radio. It looks like this new model is focusing more radio features as it has Pandora (and can access other internet radio stations) as well as a built in FM radio. Like the original version, you can install widgets (there are currently around 1500 of them) to do all sorts of things like show your Google calendar, check the weather, show your friends Facebook status, etc. The display is the same size and resolution 320

    Yes, it's basically an alarm clock that has FM radio/MP3 VIA USB abilities.

    But can also load websites like facebook & myspace, as well as stream music from last.fm, pandora and other music sites.

    Not sure but there is over 1500 widgets made for it. Basically anything even remotely popular will be able to run through the widgets.
