Today, Sirius announced the launch of the Stiletto 2, the highly anticipated update to the Stiletto 100 , a portable satellite radio that doubles as an MP3 player. The new Stiletto measures 4.3x1.9x0.6 inches and weighs 4.3 ounces, making it both smaller and lighter (by about 25%) than its predecessor--a definite plus, as one of our complaints about the 100 was its chunky build. The new player also offers enhanced WiFi capability with support for commercial hot spots, and it has a microSD card slot for memory expansion--both features that were lacking in the Stiletto 100. Features the Stiletto 2 shares with its predecessor include the ability to record live satellite songs, support for MP3 and WMA tracks (including subscription tracks from the likes of Rhapsody and Yahoo Music), and 2GB of internal flash memory. More specs after the pic.
