Satellite radio broadcaster XM is expected to raise the curtain this afternoon on a device that will bring its programming into the palm of listener's hands and may do for satellite radio what the Sony Walkman did for music. Although XM is remaining mum on what it will be announcing at its press conference today, the buzz about a portable device began last week when a research note authored by Kit Spring of Stifel Nicolaus & Company predicted a "wearable device" would be unveiled this week.
AS usual, Enderle hates Apple so much he doesn't really focus on the product itself - if there is a portable sat player, XM's main competition is NOT people who create their own radio (aka: mp3users) but rather people who buy subscription already from Real, MS or Napster - instead of having your sub tied to a computer, you are free to carry it about - that certainly doesn't replace people who prefer to program their own music ... the 600 million walkman's sold or the 10 million mp3's players sold so far. How old and out of it is Enderle? Does he use a typewriter?
