SIRIUS Satellite Radio today announced the availability of Stiletto 100, the company’s first live portable radio, featuring WiFi, Yahoo! music purchasing software, and the ability to save music subscribers love for playback later.

Stiletto 100, available this month, lets users listen to live SIRIUS programming almost anywhere in a small, stylish package. Stiletto 100 allows users to store up to 100 hours of SIRIUS content by:

  • Automatically recording hours of 100% commercial-free music from listeners’ favorite SIRIUS Satellite Radio channels;
  • Scheduling recordings, of up to 6-hours in length, of favorite talk or music shows;
  • Allowing users to save up to 10 hours of individual songs from live SIRIUS Satellite Radio broadcasts by a simple press of the “love” button.

The Stiletto 100 features WiFi capability for connection to SIRIUS’ Internet radio services, an exciting feature useful for listening anywhere an accessible WiFi network is available.

User’s own MP3/WMA files can also be stored on the Stiletto 100 and managed with the included My SIRIUS Studio software for Windows PCs. Stiletto 100 is compatible with most Windows-based Internet music providers’ download and subscription services.

The Yahoo! Music Jukebox software will be included with the Stiletto 100 package. Any individual song bookmarked by the user on the Stiletto 100 is moved into a favorites list, which can be accessed by a PC application when the unit is connected to user’s computer. The application allows users to look up and purchase songs, full albums, or explore artists’ other offerings through the Yahoo! Music Jukebox software or other compatible online music download or subscription services. Once the song is purchased or rented, it can be transferred onto the Stiletto 100.
