SIRIUS Stiletto 100 & Stiletto 10 Details... Leaked?
SIRIUS Satellite Radio held a private showing of their upcoming 2006 holiday-season products yesterday in NYC. Well, the folks at Dealerscope have published details of what I assumed was embargoed details - but maybe it was just a "no photo" event as they say in the article.
Whatever the background, I didn't attend - or sign anything - so I'll gladly post all the deets right here.
The Stiletto 100 offers 100 hours of total storage capacity, as well as storing MP3/WMA files. It also features WiFi capability and a unique antenna headphone (included) that is supposed to supplement reception.
Also provided are two lithium-ion batteries - one full-size version with 4 hours of live satellite radio listening and up to 20 hours of pre-stored-content listening and one slim version that has half the power of its full-size counterpart. Other included accessories are an AC charger, earbuds, and a PC cable.
The Stiletto 100 will MSRP for $349.
Meanwhile, the Stiletto 10 - which is also black and features the same touch-sensitive iPodish wheel - will only provide 10 hours worth of storage. This lower-end device does not support WiFi. The Stiletto 10 will MSRP of $249.
Also on display was the Stiletto Vehicle Kit which will be available in September for $69.99. A Stiletto Home Kit is also being made available in September for $69.99. This raised an eyebrow or two for me - no home kit, and no vehicle kit? Something tells me there's more to this Sirius Internet Radio than previously thought.
Docking stations with speakers will come in several versions: the Sirius Executive System (SLEX1) with an MSRP of $149.99 and available in October; and two models through Directed: the SLBB1 Boombox also will MSRP at $149.99 and also available in October, and the Soloist which we've seen already.
