Sirius unveils S50 portable music player Sirius Satellite Radio has unveiled a new portable music player called the S50, which is designed not only to store MP3 files from a PC, but also to store the company's programming aswell. Users of the new portable music devices can record and play back up to 50 hours of satellite radio programming or music files. The user is required to use a home dock or car dock to record programming or to play live shows. The car dock comes bundled with the player.
It measures 1.9in x 3.9in x 0.7in and has a colour display with voice-assited channel navigation. Sirius is hoping to make a dent in the digital music market that is currently dominated by the iPod music player owned by Apple Computers. It will sell for $359 (including car dock) when it ships in October this year. The player has different sections where different types odf audio will be stored and can be then played back from.

For example "My Sirius Channels" automatically records the programming from a users three favourite channels and "My Sirius Songs" is where people will save their music which they can then organise into playlists by connecting the home dock to a personal computer. There is also a feature called "Scheduled Record" which will allow users to capture their favorite shows on a one-time or recurring basis.
