Sirius Stiletto Leaked

Earlier in the month, Sirius had publically stated that it would announce a truly live satellite radio later in the month, though it would not provide any further details. However, the electronics retailer Crutchfield has prematurely revealed the details of that radio through the latest issue of the company's catalog. The Stiletto, as the radio is known, has at least two unique features that may give it an edge over XM-ready players such as the Pioneer Inno. One key feature is the set of antennas built into the included headphones that promise better reception than the internal antenna on other players. Another useful feature is integrated WiFi: a Stiletto user can stream satellite radio to computers if within range of a WiFi access point. A final and crucial element revealed in the leak is news about the launch itself: the Stiletto will ship on September 1st for $399.
