Yesterday, Sonos announced that their first touch screen controller CR200 will be available at stores at the end of next week. Their latest multi-room wireless music system controller uses a 3.5-inch color touch screen instead of the traditional button-based layout. Compared to other similar touch screen devices, the CR200’s screen utilizes the latest technology for superior response, accuracy and simplicity. You can flick to browse, type to search and touch to play all from the palm of your hand. It is a one-stop device that controls music in any room where a Sonos ZonePlayer is installed. Other new features are the removable and replaceable battery, its ability to withstand casual water spills (but it is not splash-proof or water-resistant), the Instant On feature and it comes with the Charging Cradle 200. You can pre-order the CR200 for $349 or pre-order the Sonos Bundle 250 (which also includes the ZonePlayer 90 and ZonePlayer 120) for $999. If you want to make sure that you get the CR200 or for the BU250 pre-order it on Abt.com. – Jenn A.
