Sonos accidentally posted the product page for the newest remote yesterday, the CR200, ahead of schedule. The product page has now been taken down but that didn’t stop Engadget from screen capturing all the leaked info.
It looks to be a scratch resistant 3.5-inch touchscreen (capacitive like the iPhone) encased in an all aluminum body. Much like the iPhone it includes a built-in light sensor that detects the ambient light that adjusts the screens brightness accordingly as well as a motion sensor that automatically wakes the device when its picked up. Battery life is variable depending on use, 2-5 days, is fully user swappable and takes 2 hours for a complete charge. No word on a street date but it will be $349 or $290 if purchased with a bundle.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
