Alltel has announced a deal with XM to bring 20 of their popular satellite radio stations straight to consumers via their cellphone. The deal will cost an additional $7.99 a month, which is a little more than half of what full XM service costs. This is similar to the deal that Sprint and SIRIUS inked last year. The service will likely only work on select handsets, so don't expect your freebie phone to be able to stream XM. The streaming software was developed by MobiTV.
