Travel portables from Philips
Manufactured by Philips, Hilversum.
Philips was an early manufacturer of transistorised portable and pocket radios. Around the same time when Sony's first microprocessor-controlled travel receiver came out, Philips released the D 2924, a travel receiver with microprocessor control, PLL synthesis and six station presets. In 1985, Philips launched two new portable sets, the comparably large travel radio D 2935 with a membrane keypad and the D 2999 tabletop receiver, which offered similar reception technology for the double price. Subsequently, Philips also adopted several small analogue receivers, which were similar to the Sony ICF-7600A and the Panasonic travel portables. Although they were very attractively priced, they could not keep up with in terms of reception performance with the Sony models.
