Satellite radio listeners have another option to listen on the go. Pioneer has unveiled their new Inno, an XM2go unit that plays live satellite radio on the go as well as MP3s and WMAs. This new product comes on the same day as a similar offering from Samsung. In fact, the Samsung Helix and Pioneer Inno are virtually the same unit.
The Inno has flash memory which allows you to record 50 hours of XM content or to store your music files. It has a 180×180 pixel TFT screen to help you organize your content. It has the XM + Napster feature to let you bookmark songs you want to download from Napster. It has a built-in FM transmitter which lets you send your satellite signal to a nearby FM radio.
The Inno measures 3.7” x 2.2” x 0.6” and weighs 4.5 ounces. It will be available some time in the first quarter of 2006 for $399.99.
