Logi Squeezebox Touch Leak

Logitech is planning to upgrade its Squeezebox media streaming hub with a high-end, touchscreen model. Forum goers have noticed a product listing for a Squeezebox Touch (pictured) and understand that it has a 4.3-inch, capacitive touchscreen that would be used to control most media playback on the network. It would also have room for local storage with music accepted directly from both SD cards and USB; output should involve the usual RCA stereo and headphone jacks as well as digital co-ax and optical for home theaters.

The Touch doesn't have a confirmed release window but is likely to be priced at $299.

Also on tap are three minor updates that should be headlined by a "sleeker" version of the Squeezebox Duet remote/speaker combo at $399. A battery-powered portable Squeezebox is reportedly due for $199, and a more powerful clock radio that should surface for $299. [via Logitech and Sonos forums]
