Alpine Electronics Announces Seven New Models That Feature Pandora Radio

Back January 10, 2012

New models are compatible across iPhone, Android and BlackBerry smartphones

Torrance, Calif. (Jan. 10, 2012) - Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. has announced the launch of seven new radio receivers designed to support Pandora® internet radio – including Alpine’s first introduction of three models that are universally compatible with iPhone®, Android™ and BlackBerry® smartphones. All seven models will be on display at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Jan. 10-13 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Alpine’s Pandora compatible lineup consists of 1-DIN CD receivers, 2-DIN audio/video (AV) head units, and 2-DIN Audio/Video/Navigation (AVN) systems. Direct control of Pandora programming takes place via the buttons on the faceplate or soft keys on the touch screens. Listeners can access key features to further personalize their Pandora stations including thumbs-up, thumbs-down and track skip – all without accessing their smartphone. New Pandora stations can be easily created with just one touch. Artist, song and album name are shown on the unit’s display, and album art is also visible on the AV head units and AVN system. Customizable and powerful sound settings add to the personalized Pandora experience, allowing users to target specific tuning parameters and adjust them to their distinct taste.

“Alpine was the first aftermarket brand to offer integrated, in-vehicle Pandora control,” said Steve Crawford, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “We are building on this leadership with the introduction of seven new Pandora models this year, plus expanded compatibility with the addition of the Android and BlackBerry smartphones.”

New for 2012 is direct Pandora control on Alpine units from Android and BlackBerry devices. The CDE-135BT, CDE-HD137BT and CDE-HD138BT CD receivers have Pandora control from Android or BlackBerry smartphones, using Bluetooth® wireless technology. Pandora control from an iPhone is available on the CDE-136BT CD receiver, through a direct USB connection. The IVE-W535HD AV head unit and INE-S920HD and INE-Z928HD AVN systems can access Pandora from iPhone, Android or BlackBerry smartphones.
