Slacker Portable Internet Radio Player Goes Live


To those of you who haven’t heard about Slacker, we are talking about an internet radio service that hosts hundreds of radio stations. Slacker announced the release of a portable internet radio player, back in January 2008 at the CES show and now it goes live and getting shipped to retailers. The new Slacker player comes with three 4-inch screen models:

  • 2GB – stores 15 stations and free 500MB for your personal media – 200$.
  • 4GB – stores 25 stations and free 1.5GB for your personal media – 250$.
  • 8GB – stores 40 stations and free 4GB for your personal media – 300$.

The stations are loaded to the player through your USB-PC sync or through wireless hotspots, via the WiFi connection. Each station is presumably loading 100 songs to the player and it seems they are doing a good job in learning your music taste, Pandora style. A satellite car dock is expected to be released in the near future.
