Delphi SkyFi3 XM Radio

XM Satellite Radio subscribers who want portability have largely had their choice of player limited to the Pioneer Inno or Samsung Helix. A third device should soon be available, according to Orbitcast. Online retailer JJI Electronics posted but subsequently removed a pre-order page for the upcoming SkyFi3 from Delphi. The new handheld would mark the first handheld satellite radio in the company's SkyFi line, which has only had dedicated car and home radios so far. Though not a live radio when away from the included external receiver, the SkyFi 3's features will be relativly advanced compared to rivals from both Sirius and XM. A large 2.8-inch screen will give enough room to tune live content and see relevant track information; 10 hours of recording is also possible with built-in memory. There is also a unique microSD slot that can store up to 500 of the user's own songs on a 2GB card. Songs heard on the radio can be tagged for purchase later on Napster. According to JJI, the SkyFi3 should see an add-on kit for live portable radio and will ship in late October for $200.
