The first thing one notices is the design. Extremely industrial, it is available in either Black 16GB or Platinum 32GB which consists of a brushed metal back and a glass OLED touch screen.

HD Radio allows you to not only listen to FM radio but also HD stations, giving you a larger selection and higher clarity.
