Chumby Industries launches its new Chumby Internet Device and Chumby Network today. The company says it has secured deals with leading content providers like CBS, MTV Networks, MySpace, The Weather Channel, AOL’s SHOUT cast and Scripps Networks.
The Chumby is described as a little larger than a coffee cup with a Wi-Fi connection that allows people to get parts of their Internet at a glance. The device seems to be sort of an Internet connected alarm clock and even allows users to wake up to Internet radio stations.
The Chumby device retails for $179.99 with shipping included. "The richness and diversity of information on the Web has become critical to our everyday lives, so it becomes more important than ever to stay connected to our 'Internet life' and be able to access a wealth of information simply at a glance," said Steve Tomlin, founder and CEO, Chumby Industries. "The powerful combination of the free Chumby Network and the open and always-on Chumby creates a compelling offering to consumers to easily create, view and share what matters to them most from the Web without the need to browse on a PC. And media companies can showcase and monetize content on an exciting new distribution platform that reaches consumers in different parts of their lives and at different times of the day."
