Wal-Mart has reached an agreement and will begin selling HD Radio players today at many stores nationwide. A $170 JVC car-radio will be the first available, but it is interesting to see Wal-Mart to plunge on this technology all together. As Orbitcast points out the fact that HD Radio is free could appeal to the "cost-conscious" (cheap) Wal-Mart market, but then again, HD Radio is fairly complicated technology. Good luck explaining what HD Radio is, and why people should buy it, Wal-Mart employees.
