Sirius XM Lynx goes Android for first time

Sirius XM picked the very end of the year to unveil its most advanced satellite radio after a long wait. The Lynx Portable Radio is the first of its kind to use Android, both to give it an overall newer interface as well as Internet radio over Wi-Fi and smarter Bluetooth linking. As the first Sirius XM 2.0 radio, it gets the expanded channel lineup as well as wider timeshifting.

The options change depending on where and how the radio is being used. In the car with an optional LV1 dock or at home with an LH1 kit, it can start any ongoing song from the beginning if it's a favorite station, automatically record as much as 200 hours of music, and pause as well as replay radio with a half-hour buffer. Listeners can check schedules as far as a week ahead and look at featured favorites.

On Wi-Fi, regardless of the setup, it can jump back as far as five hours for radio shows, get detailed artist information, carry an 'infinite' buffer, and check the full programming guide. Android will also be upgradable over Wi-Fi.

The Lynx is already available to buy and costs $250 by itself, or $320 when bundled with either the car or home kits. The LH1 and LV1 are available individually for $70. Sirius XM costs at least $13 per month, although Premier channel access costs $17.
