SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO has launched a small yet powerful new receiver dubbed the STILETTO 100. The new radio - the first SIRIUS unit to allow for live portable listening - is capable of recording 100 hours of programming, has WIFI capability to allow listening via the Internet instead of satellite, and interfaces with YAHOO! MUISIC JUKEBOX to allow listeners to purchase bookmarked songs.
The STILETTO 100 can also be set to record programs up to six hours in length for later playback. Users can also save up to ten hours of individual songs by pressing the "love" button, and also store and manage their own mp3/WMA files via the included MY SIRIUS STUDIO software for PCs, making the STILETTO 100 compatible with most music download and subscription services on the Internet.
Other features of the MSRP $349 radio include 30 channel presets; SIRIUS REPLAY, which allows users to pause, rewind and replay 60 minutes of live radio; GAME ALERT, which prompts the listener when favorite games are being broadcast and alerts when scores change; GAME ZONE, listing all of the user's favorite teams in one virtual category; and parental controls and channel lockout.
