With the new Crave T-Mini tablets, you no longer need to purchase a separate TV remote, radio, bedside alarm clock or USB charging ports as they are all integrated into the Crave solution. Each T-Mini tablet has an infra-red port to allow it to control the television, thermostat or any other IR device. All tablets have in-built speakers with an alarm clock function.
