Sony, in an interesting retro move, is to launch a portable AM/FM radio with special features for people learning foreign languages. The device can store up to 178 hours of programming in its 4 gigabytes of internal memory.
Cambridge University Press, which recorded record sales last year on the back of its ELT business, has opened its 8th office in India. The Kerala office will focus on sales of ELT and academic books.
