The S50 release date moving UP! & price moving Down?!
I have talked to some sources that tell me that the S50 will be out very soon, earlier then first reported by Sirius. I do want to stress that this is nothing official but, it looks very likely that the new S50 Mp3 Player/Sirius radio will be out by October, or very early October. The MSRP is also something that might change, a lower MSRP is something that I'm hearing. Look for some info on the S50 to hit Sirius.com in a week or two.. Talk of a package deal (getting home/car/wearable kits with radio) is also flying around.
This is from the Sirius Press release back on 8/25/05
"The SIRIUS S50 will be available for a suggested retail price of $359.99, and includes wearable accessories (6-hour rechargeable battery, ear buds, belt clip, armband, USB cable and AC adapter) and a car dock, which includes an adhesive mount, custom cigarette lighter power adapter, a remote control, ultra-low profile antenna, DC input and line output. A home dock, which includes audio mixing for PC sound pass-through, and connects to speakers and PCs, a remote control, home antenna, USB cable, audio cable and power supply will be available for MSRP $99.99. A desk or wall mountable executive system, including high fidelity speakers, will also be available. Replaceable batteries will be sold separately. "
