OK Guys and Gals, Give it your best guess. It took two months to get the latest firmware upgrade:

Zap: 1.0.2.18248r 11/16/2006
Zap: 1.0.3.21105r 01/17/2007

Who's going to guess when we see the next one.

I would imagine that this upgrade fixed most of the issues and gave us one new feature, the clock.

I would hope they would start looking at the feature list and give us a few more of them.

But then again, who knows. The S50 has been without an upgrade for a long time.

They probably will save the features for the next model of the stiletto. I'm sure they want us to drop another 300 or so dollars on the SL200 next September.

My guess is we probably will have another fix upgrade around April Fools Day.

What's Your Guess? What will it include?

Well in the chat on Monday
"Let me clarify -- Wireless G support will be in new models; it cannot be provided for existing models. Regarding future implemenation of 802.11G, we will be as secure as possible."

I can only conclude it means there will be a new model. It's probably in the planning or testing phase now. Getting ready for this year's christmas.

It was not a joke only a guess.

I saw within 2 weeks for the CNN channel, and then 3 months for the next real update.

Unless of course we all discover something wrong with this latest release that they missed.

Adding channels in Wifi is pretty much just done on the fly, so that in my opinion isn't really an upgrade.

Stability issues seem to be pretty minimum at this point, so hopefully the next upgrade will be to add a couple of our requested features. However, when you add features you also add the potential for issues, so I am sure internal testing will take awhile.

I think right now most will be pretty happy with the Stiletto rather there is an update anytime rather sooner or later.

I'm so happy with this Stiletto they would have to produce something completely out of this world before gettng me to buy an SL200 or whatever is called. I never had a problem with the wifi feature, the sound quality on wifi may not be as great, but it doesn't bother me at all. The recording capacity is good enough for me. I think the only way they can make reception a lot better is by adding more repeaters. The only way they can make the antenna headphones better is by trying to come up with some flexible antenna material which I don't know if it would be cost effective.

So far I haven't had any problems with my Stiletto and if after 6 months it stays this way I will consider a lifetime subscription for it.

I'm guessing we won't see any firmware upgrades till after baseball season.
(Unless something bad happens and a major flaw is uncovered with this upgrade.) As DAB suggested, they'll take their time testing new features and since it aint broke, why fix it?

i second the motion. i wouldn't think it'd be that hard to code this into the current system.
