Why do we still have no details on the new SIRIUS Wearable Unit?

Friday, May 05, 2006

As you know we and others reported that SIRIUS was likely to show off its new units during Tuesday’s conference call. We are told that SIRIUS is now holding back on new product announcements to prevent what happened with the S50. As you may recall last year the S50 was shown off in August then the speculation started to fly. Some SIRIUS fan pages were filled with false information about the unit. Mostly about what people were thinking the S50 would and would not do. These falsehoods posted on some SIRIUS forums about the S50 caused disappointment for the first users of the product. This bad information lead to negative press about the unit, and other repercussions. SIRIUS has locked down information about all the new units to prevent mostly uninformed kids from posting information about the new units possible causing the damage they did last year. SIRIUS also wants to have a date set in stone, so they do not have release dates slip like they did with the S50. The only information about this new unit is that it is due this summer, and will be a wearable SIRIUS/Mp3 unit with a buy button. We will follow this..

This post is uncalled for and is inflammatory. This is also beneath your usual standards of reporting.

Seems in obvious response to some negative "press" on siriusbackstage.com. Again, not necessary.

This post was made becuase we asked someone at SIRIUS why we do not have more info on this new unit and when the new unit will be shown off. Most of the info in our post is word for word out of his email. It is very true that the S50 was hurt by bad info all over the net. If you think that post was about just one place. You are wrong, it is just the one this SIRIUS person talked about.
