"Live" satellite handheld

Though price and technical details are currently absent, Sirius on Tuesday announced that it plans a "personal live satellite radio" device launch later in August. Its current codename is "Stiletto." While Sirius already has a handheld, the S50, the unit can only play live satellite radio if connected to a PC set to use the service; without this, users are limited to transferring content they've recorded. The addition of a truly live portable player should help Sirius in its fierce marketshare battle with XM, as for months Sirius has had nothing to counter live XM radio players such as the Pioneer Inno.
