BusinessWeek is catching on to the Stiletto hype with an article today. Nothing that you haven't seen here before, but here are the highlights:
* A comparably priced XM portable also has a built-in antenna, but stores only half as much content. Stiletto also has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, letting users download content from the Web at cafés and airports
* Inclusion of Wi-Fi in the Stiletto puts Sirius at the front of a pack of electronics makers expected to feature the wireless broadband connectivity in devices in coming months
* "Sirius has not just caught up with XM but raised the bar," says Frank Viquez, an analyst with consultancy ABI Research.
* In May, XM lowered its full-year subscriber forecast to 8.5 million, from 9 million, citing softness in the industry. But in August, Sirius did the opposite, increasing its 2006 subscriber forecast to 6.3 million.
* With Stiletto holiday sales ramping up, and with 2007 car models with Sirius radios rolled out, Viquez believes that Sirius could reach 50% market share as early as the first quarter of next year. By yearend, Sirius expects to control about 42% of the market, where XM will hold 58% shar
