The folks at Slacker have taken the next step in their business by launching a new portable player that is smaller, more capable, and hitting the market in time for the 2008 holiday season. As is typical, Slacker brings a unique flair to their player, and given how awesome their Internet radio service is, fans will gravitate to this new player.

The new player makes Slacker even more competitive with satellite radio as well as iPod, by getting the size and capabilities in their player more in line with consumer expectations. When Slacker gets to the point of a car kit, the race for listeners ears will have a new and viable competitor.
