XM Radio and Delphi Launch Portable Satellite Radio Player
NEW YORK- In a New York City press event this week, XM Satellite Radio and Delphi Corporation announced a new portable satellite radio product, the first of its kind, as well as a new XM platform. The new radio, the MyFi, built by Delphi, is about the size of a portable cassette player, includes a lithium ion rechargeable battery, built-in antenna, headphones and flash memory for storing up to five hours worth of XM radio content.
"Consumers have been waiting for a wearable satellite radio that also works in the car and home. XM and Delphi are thrilled to make this product a reality in time for the upcoming holiday season," said XM CEO Hugh Panero.
The MyFi will ship in early December to major retailers such as Best Buy, Circuit City and Crutchfield. Included in the $349 package is a complete home kit, car kit, belt clip, carrying case and charger. The Delphi MyFi is the first product from the new XM2GO platform, which delivers all of XM's 130 digital radio channels.
