Delphi SkyFi3 XM Satellite Radio Spotted, Has Removable Storage

Sharp eyes have spotted Delphi's upcoming SkyFi3 portable XM Satellite Radio. By far, its biggest attention getter is the fact that it has a microSD card slot, letting users store up to 500 songs and 10 hours of XM programming. There's also a 30-minute replay feature, so in case you want to hear a song that aired 25 minutes ago, you're in good hands. The microSD card slot means that the SkyFi3 is the first portable satellite radio with removable storage. You can just hear the RIAA's lawyers packing their briefcases.

Like the Pioneer Inno and Samsung Helix before it, the SkyFi3 lets users tag songs that they fancy for later downloading on Napster. Good thing XM partnered up with a winning online music service.

The electronics Web site where this first appeared lists the Delphi SkyFi3 as coming out in October for $199.
