  • Pioneer Inno for XM

    Earlier this month at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, XM Satellite Radio unveiled a pair of devices that double as radio receivers and MP3 players. Both are part of its XM2go line and are expected to go on sale in March. A tie-in with the Napster online music service lets people bookmark songs they're listening to for later purchase. Pictured here is the $400 Pioneer Inno (4.5 ounces, 3.7 inches high by 2.2 inches wide and a half-inch deep), which stores up to 50 hours of programming.

  • Samsung Helix for XM

    XM Satellite Radio unveiled a second radio receiver/MP3 player at CES, the $400 Samsung Helix. It sports the same dimensions as the Inno and similarly stores 50 hours of programming. Both devices are due out in the first quarter.

  • XM Roady XT

    The XM Roady XT, $80 from Delphi (now available with a $30 rebate), is the company's smallest plug-and-play unit, measuring roughly 2 inches by 4 inches. It can transmit a signal through any of 100 FM frequencies and can display both sports scores and stock prices on its two-line display. An optional $100 pack with a battery, headphones and a built-in antenna will be available from Belkin by March. The pack will allow the Roady XT to be used as a portable unit.
