Delphi Announces SkyFi3

Details of Delphi's first truly portable SkyFi system became available late last week, hinting at a portable XM satellite radio with an unusually large 2.8-inch display and microSD storage for the listener's own songs. The company ended speculation about features on Wednesday through officially announcing the SkyFi3, shedding new light on the device's intended role. Much of the previous information was accurate, including recording of up to 10 hours of satellite radio on the player's built-in flash; an important new detail is the addition of an optional $49 antenna-equipped headphones that let the user listen to live radio without a separate tuner or power supply. Delphi has designed the SkyFi3 primarily as a car or home radio, however, and says that its new receiver will only play 90 minutes of live satellite when using the battery. Alternative sources of audio on the SkyFi3 include MP3 and WMA tracks as well as FM radio. Delphi plans a December 1st launch for the new XM adapter at a $229 price.
