Pioneer XMp3 Best Buy Leak

XM's XMp3 handheld satellite radio has surfaced today in a Best Buy listing that confirms much more about the device. The device is now known to have been made by Pioneer, which made the preceding Inno, and will work as a traditional MP3 player as well as a tuner. A microSDHC slot should hold at least 8GB of MP3 or WMA tracks, including those recorded from XM itself.

The entry also echoes earlier details that the device will record as many as five channels at once, including in advance, and should provide about 10 hours of capture time; it's unknown whether this limit refers to built-in memory, as with the Inno, or is imposed regardless of removable memory cards. Best Buy confirms that a home dock for home listening will be bundled with the player rather than an option.

No direct clues are given regarding the launch, though Best Buy lists a $280 price for the XMp3 and estimates shipping within one to two weeks, which would result in a late September introduction. [via Orbitcast]
