In addition to a $150 Harmony 700 remote, Logitech announced on Thursday its Squeezebox Radio, a clock radio-sized speaker system that streams Internet radio, online music services and songs stored on your computer.

Called a "network music player" -- it uses 802.11g -- the radio has integrated speakers and a 2.4-inch LCD with which you can view playlists and other information. The 'box has neat social network integration, pairing with Facebook, Rhapsody, Pandora, Slacker, iTunes, Sirius, and Last.fm and more for music recommendations and tunes, respectively.

Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux, it can handle MP3, FLAC, WMA, WMA Lossless, AAC, Apple Lossless, WAV, and AIFF.

It's available at the end of September for $199 in black or red.

Logitech also announced the step-up Squeezebox Touch model, distinguished by a 4.3-inch touchscreen and outputs for connecting directly to a home entertainment system.

The Touch can also play tracks directly from USB drives and SD cards.

It's set for December release and will sell for $299.
