S50 Live on the Go?!?!?!

Thursday, December 08, 2005

Over the past few weeks, there has been some chatter about the S50 having more options, that will be rolled out slowly, like video, images, and more. Yesterday David Freer CFO of SIRIUS let a cat out of the bag... He said, "So mid-year next year you should expect to see an S50 product that is also a live radio when you're walking around with it." We do not know if this will be an upgrade for the current S50 or it will be the next S50 type unit. I have been told that a portable kit will could make the current S50 portable. But these are all just rumors..

Here is what orbitcast is reporting:
".... one big request that many people are asking is: when can we have true portable live Satellite Radio?

The answer was given at the Global Media Conference yesterday, by David Freer CFO of Sirius Satellite Radio.

"This product [Sirius S50] will get incrementally better as we go into next year. Our chip development plans so far have been been optimized to reduce costs, as well as the form factor of the product. We'll take the same chip that sits in the S50 and power optimize it in the course of the next six months.

So mid-year next year you should expect to see an S50 product that is also a live radio when you're walking around with it.

And power optimizing the chip, in essence, gives you a smaller battery size, and so it keeps a very nice form factor for consumers." "
