SqueezeBox Touch shipped
An unnamed Logitech customer has already received the Squeezebox Touch, ahead of any official release date from Logitech itself. The product clearly isn't ready for prime-time, however, as it is stuck in software update mode. The owner isn't getting any help from Logitech's support line, with technical staff refusing to acknowledge its existence. Photos of the multimedia streaming hub's box reveals the official specs, including its 4.3-inch, 24-bit color LCD utilizing capacitive touchscreen technology.
Other specs include Wi-Fi and Ethernet connection options, a USB port and SD card slot. The device integrates digital optical output alongside the traditional audio connections, while there is also an infrared proximity sensor. The same audio streaming capability as in the regular Squeezebox is retained, enabling access to content from Pandora, Sirius, Last.fm and other providers. [via Engadget]
