Is This The New SIRIUS wearable????

Friday, June 02, 2006

OK, it looks like this is it.. The Zing based player with a SIRIUS Branding will be out some time this year!

GSI is told that Zing doesn't plan to make its own devices. Zing will rather license its technology to others, like Directed?

We are told that the device that will be available from Sirius later this year, is somewhat larger than the slick Zing production model (pictured above).

Zing has a partnership with SIRIUS that lets subscribers listen to satellite radio — the "live" satellite radio streamed through a wireless Internet connection, not from the heavens. GSI is not sure if the unit will use the birds when in a dock, or in your car.

This could be very big for SIRIUS, some are calling the Zing player an "I-Pod Killer"

Zing leans heavily on wireless connections to let users access music stored on a networked computer, or an Internet-based subscription service like Yahoo! Music, or even on a friend’s device that is within range — all through a seamless interface. Listening to a song on an Internet radio station and want to buy the CD? The iPod-sized Zing will (in theory) be able to sync up with an online music store to complete the purchase.
