Sirius XM SkyDock: The satellite radio that uses your iPhone's interface


Satellite radio fans! The Sirius XM SkyDock, first revealed a few months ago, is now available at wherever you buy your equipment. It’s a fully functional radio, but one that uses your iPhone (or iPod touch) as the interface. That is to say you’re iPhone isn’t the radio, but rather the interface for the SkyDock itself.

I haven’t used it, of course, but Orbitcast did, and Mr. Orbitcast himself seemed to like it, saying that “If you are one of the millions who own an iPhone or iPod Touch and prefer a clean install, this is the radio for you.”

High praise, yes.

The SkyDock, which retails for $119, works with every model of the iPhone and iPod touch, provided you’re running OS 3.0 or higher.
