Does anyone have dimensions on the dock that the Stilletto is shown with?
I know the dims on the Stilletto havent been published, but if we have the dims on the Soloist, we should be able to ballpark some dims on the Stilletto...

No. it will have all new peripherals. the stiletto home dock has an extra slot to charge the extra battery, and the car dock will have presets and an fm freq preset button (like the starmate). both home and car dock will have wireles fm xmitters built in. the stiletto will also have its own boombox.

I have to admit I am not overly impressed with the stiletto in it's appearance. It just seems bulky. I guess I will have to actually hold one to see if it is worth it.

Bulky? Your kidding right? Its about the same size as the current S50 media player, but includes a tuning wheel to control it. It maybe a bit thicker, but size wise, this thing isn't that big at all. What are you seeing that makes you say its bulky, cause I want to see that photo? The measurements offered above certainly don't bare out that it is bulky.

I agree definitely not bulky. But yeah people think my Treo 700 is bulky but truth be told it is not much bigger than my old flip phone.

With that said, the dimensions listed appear to be about the same as a treo. The S50 that my co-worker has appears is a tad smaller but not by much. Width I think is the only REAL noticeable difference.

BTW what was the link on crutchfield that went missing today?

go to www.archive.org you should be able to bring it up that way. You would be amazed at what old websites look like from years ago.

Bluetooth? I've not seen anything that indicate the Stiletto supports Bluetooth? I wonder if that is some sort of add-on?
