Saregama India has launched a portable version of the original Carvaan music player that was shaped like a retro radio. The portable device is dubbed Carvaan Go and looks like an Apple iPod.
The Carvaan Go is a small handheld speaker that weighs only 88gms. It can easily slip inside a pocket. The device features a small display that shows tracks, artist name, and battery life. There are various buttons for controlling playback. The Carvaan comes with a built-in speaker similar to those found on smartphones to listen to music without headphones. Users can also connect headphones or external speakers via the 3.5mm audio jack. The Carvaan Go also comes with Bluetooth support and a microSD card slot in which users can load their favourite songs. The device also features FM/AM radio as well.
The Carvaan Go comes preloaded with 3,000 evergreen songs categorised into Artistes, Specials, and pre-curated playlists. It includes a collection of music from popular artists like Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and more. Carvaan Go promises to deliver up to 7 hours of music playback on a single charge, and has a micro-USB port for charging.
