Pioneer Friday announced the Inno, a US$400 portable satellite radio receiver that also plays MP3 and WMA files.
The device has 1GB of flash memory, and can record up to 50 hours of radio programming. That is, if you choose not to load any MP3s. At the outset, you partition the memory for either 100 percent XM content, or 50/50 radio recordings and MP3/WMA files.
For recording XM shows, there is a 40-second buffer so you have a little leeway before deciding whether to record a song or program. The Inno should ship in March.
