New Sonos controller launched

- Sonos CR200
Photos have been floating around for a few weeks - but yesterday was the launch party (no - I wasn't there).

Touch screen (3.5” full-color VGA display 640x480 pixels) with some dedicated function buttons.
List price 349 USD

As always from Sonos - it looks good, it seems to works well - and it is at the top-end of the price range.
Remember - this is just a remote control for their devices - so you still need a Sonos player. Their iPhone/iPod Touch application remains free and offers very similar capability (but clearly without dedicated buttons for very quick access to some parts).
