Portable XM Satellite radio players have come a long way in such a short time, as evidenced by Pioneer’s Inno, which for the first time allows both satellite radio and MP3/WAV playback from the same little unit.
The Inno allows you to listen to and record XM content, which can then be organized with the built in content management system. MP3 and WMA files that have been uploaded from a computer can also be organized into the same playlists.
Weighing 4.5 ounces and measuring 94 x 56 x 16mm, the Inno includes a 1.67�? TFT screen, 1GB of storage (est. 50 hours of recorded content), artists and tune select, as well as sports and stock tickers.
Included with the XM player is a home docking station and antenna, ear buds, cables, carrying case, and XM/Napster CD.
The Pioneer Inno should be available in spring of this year for 400USD.
