Delphi SkyFi3 XM Satellite Radio: FOUND!
Tags: 2, XM
While XM Satellite Radio hasn't officially announced the new Delphi SkyFi3 it seems that the peeps over at
JJI Electronics have a pre-order page up already with some very juicy info and pics. Here's the info that we know so far:
The XM SkyFi3 mates a plug-and-play receiver with an integrated tuner. So think of it like a next generation PnP with advanced storage capabilities. It features a big ol' 2.8" screen with a horizontal or a vertical mount.
Here's the real cool part. The SkyFi3 allows for 30-minutes of replay functionality, storage of up to 10 hours of XM programming (with the built-in memory) and up to 500 songs on an optional 2Gb microSD card (!).
With the internal battery, the SkyFi3 provides 5 hours of fun in portable-playback mode. And just like the Pioneer Inno, you can "tag" songs you hear on XM for purchase later with XM+Napster.
There's some optional accessories that we don't know much about just yet... such as a wearable live kit. The microSD card compatability especially is of interest to me as this would be the first satellite radio receiver to include removable storage.
Price? Oh right.
JJI has it listed for $199.99 and is expecting their first SkyFi3 shipment in late October.
UPDATE: Got ahold of the photos without the watermark and updated the images to reflect this.
UPDATE2: JJI Electronics apparently has taken the page offline. I think I may have gotten somebody in trouble...
Check out more pics after the jump...
