The MP3 player market is just not worth entering, so Slacker chose to go for the portable radio player one instead. The company announced plans to release three such models, with 15, 25 and 40 station capacities.

"With the Slacker Portable Radio Player, for the first time, people can play their personalized radio stations wherever they go, " said Dennis Mudd, CEO of Slacker. "We've created a groundbreaking portable music device that lets people play their favorite music without working at it, whenever they want to listen."
The Slacker Portable is designed to work with Slacker Basic Radio and Premium Radio services and will play personal radio stations anytime, either online or offline. Personalized stations are automatically refreshed via Wi-Fi or USB.
The device features support for MP3, WMA and AAC formats. According to the manufacturer, the (removable/ rechargeable battery) battery should last for about 10 hours. Add to this a 4" color screen and the usual earphones, USB 2.0 cable and carrying case package and the offer is complete.
Slacker is already taking pre-orders for the device.
