Not content with teaming up with Mini Moderns for some stylish radios, Pure has now teamed up with Sanderson to rework the Evoke D2 and D4 Mio DAB Bluetooth radios.
The follow up to the original Pure Mio, the Pure Evoke Mio Abacus Flower Edition by Orla Kiely throws in another of the retro-styled designs, plus a few new features to the digital radio itself.
Speaking about the new design, Kiely said: 'I chose the slate grey, Abacus Flower print for this radio as it contrasts well with the first radio and fits in with my passion for creating quality and functional down-to-earth designs that complement any home interior.'
Pure is battling Roberts for the designer radio crown, but we think this Pure Evoke Mio DAB radio by Orla Kiely just edges the Roberts Cath Kidston radio.
As you can see, the exterior is covered by Orla Kiely's signature stem print, finished off with a mirrored chrome handle and a walnut-veneered cabinet. According to Pocket Lint, it has both DAB and FM reception, with an input for an iPod or MP3 player and the option of the Pure ChargePAK for up to 24 hours of portable listening per charge. Other features include 30 presets and Intellitext and textScan functions for pausing and scrolling through text information.
The Pure Evoke Mio DAB radio by Orla Kiely will be on sale exclusively at John Lewis from early November and at other retailers from March 2011. £149.99 will secure you one. Another shot of the radio over the page.

The original was first featured on this site back in 2006, so it's high time for an upgrade for the Pure Evoke-1S Marshall DAB radio. Which has just been announced.
In looks, much is the same – it still mimics a classic Marshall amplifier, offering a solid wood, Marshall made and approved cabinet complete with an integrated, full range hi-fi speaker packing a custom-designed 3-inch driver, active filters and bass reflex port. If you want stereo, there's also an additional matching auxiliary speaker, but you'll have to pay a little extra for that.
