Well well well, what do we have here? It looks like a new device from Sirius XM Radio Inc. has been circulated with our friends at the FCC. It's called the XM Snap (XSN1), and if I was to venture a guess, it has the distinct odor of Android surrounding it.

XM available at Radio Shack
Radio Shack is now, once again, selling XM satellite radios and XM accessories as you can see from the snippet of The Shack's latest weekly ad pictured above. It's been a very long time (at least a few years) since we've seen XMs available as Radio Shack was persistently an exclusive retail partner to Sirius.

XMp3The new XMP3i isn't really that new more upgraded from the XMP3 than anything else. But the "i" designation will make it a better experience, and an overall better radio, especially for novice users.

The XMP3i accomplishes all this because it now supports the latest generation FM transmitter from Sirius XM Radio Inc. - the PowerConnect FM transmitter.
