Sirius Stiletto 100

Sirius has finally delivered its response to XM's current dominance of 'true' portable live radios several weeks after a formal announcement. Bringing flexibility to Sirius subscribers is the newly announced Stiletto 100, whose features are expressly designed for traveling listeners. Beyond the key feature of listening to live Sirius broadcasts without a car kit or home receiver, the Stiletto can record 6-hour blocks of any programming for later playback or 10 hours of individual songs from music stations. Up to 100 hours of total Sirius content can be stored on the radio's 2GB of internal flash storage. The Stiletto also features tight integration with Yahoo! Music: songs bookmarked during a live radio broadcast can be purchased later as WMA files when the user returns to a Windows PC and even transferred back to the player as permanent copies. Unprotected MP3 and WMA songs are also supported. Lastly, Sirius has incorporated WiFi to give the player access to the network's Internet radio services at any access point, keeping the user connected even if the satellite signal is blocked. The Stiletto 100 should ship by the end of this month for $349 (the product page currently lists an incorrect $379).
