New Squeezebox delayed for unknown cause
Logitech at mid-day said it has delayed its launch of the Squeezebox Touch until February. The company didn't provide an explanation for the delay, which comes after it had already pushed back the launch of the media streaming hub to December in its original September unveiling.
The device is the first Squeezebox of any kind to have a touchscreen interface and, besides the interface benefits, is the first optimized for photo viewing. It can both access a local network's music collection as well as stream Internet radio, including Last.fm and RealNetworks' Rhapsody subscription service. A simpler Squeezebox unveiled at the same time, the Radio, is already on shelves.
