Slacker Portable Player Delayed Again
The debut of Slacker’s Digital Audio Player has been officially delayed until January 31st, 2008. According to an email received by customers who have pre-ordered, Slacker has rescheduled the ship date of its Wi-Fi-enabled, streaming portable to 2008 “in order to deliver the best possible player.”
This is not a good sign. The player was originally supposed to bow last summer, then got pushed to Fall 2007. When that come and went, the concern issued a firm December 13th delivery date — just in time for the holidaze. Now with this important target missed, the investors have got to be asking themselves, “why did I think this was a good idea?” Customers can opt to wait it out for another six weeks or can cancel their orders.
