Echostar (aka Dish Network) has been blowing up their Pocket Dish device hype more than an episode of Looney Tunes. It's unfortunately not streaming like the "portable" XM recievers out there. Dish Network subscribers will be able to download a number of satellite pay-TV programs from a Dish Network Satellite Box to the Pocket Dish for viewing at a later time. Lame. The Pocket Dish will be offered with several LCD screen sizes from 2-to-7 inches, with the 7-inch model expected to sell for $599. Too much money and not enough effort into this product is not worth it. These satellite-related companies need to get with the program and realize we want live, streaming satellite feeds.
