#ATIA13: Possible Flyer for New HumanWare Victor Stream Leaked

We've received a PDF file which appears to be a flyer for a new Victor Stream to be released by HumanWare. Earlier today, the company teased a release of a new product at the ATIA conference in orlando. The flyer lists several new features for this model including wireless 802.11N support, built-in clock, USB charging, Acapela speech output, and a 28 percent smaller size.
We have not been able to verify the authenticity of the flyer, though the content and features seem quite reasonable for a new stream. We'll post more information as we learn more.
You can download the flyer in .PDF or read the full text of the release below. Update: Blind Bargains is able to verify that the Victor Stream flyer did originate from Humanware.
