RCA Launches Sept 2008
RCA has finished the week with three new devices all meant to modernize the company's line. The Lyra name is being revived with the Lyra Slider, a basic portable media player that uses the same concept as behind slider phones to shrink the size of the device without sacrificing controls. The black and chrome look improves on earlier designs and is matched by a handful of extras that include FM radio and voice recording. RCA is counting on pricing as it ships 4GB and 8GB versions later in the fall for $80 and $100 respectively.
