XM talking with carriers about radio on cellphones

XM Radio Logo

So, XM looks like the latest company looking to cash get in on the whole music cellphone thang. It seems like maybe they're rethinking their whole "buy a bunch of expensive proprietary equipment to use our service" business model in general, as they also recently launched a desktop radio service with AOL. In any case, they want us all to know they're in talks with the wireless carriers about making some sort of satellite radio service available via your cell — no deals are in place and they don't really have any details to tell us, but they felt it was important for us all to know. Thanks for keeping us in the loop, guys.
