The Sirius XM Lynx portable radio is now available, a few months after it was inadvertently leaked in detail by Best Buy. The Lynx features new capabilities introduced with the Sirius XM 2.0 platform, including the ability to restart in-progress shows and songs, pause live radio, and store up to 200 hours of satellite radio programming — functionality that was recently added to the Sirius XM iOS app. It has b/g/n Wi-Fi for listening to Sirius XM internet radio or can receive satellite signals when docked in the optional LV1 vehicle kit or LH1 home kit ($69.99 each). The Lynx is powered by a 1200mAh rechargeable battery and has a 3.5-inch 800 x 480 multi-touch display, microSD card slot for storing MP3 and AAC+ files, and Bluetooth connectivity. Sirius XM also claims it can be upgraded in the future, since its Android-based architecture "allows for new features and capabilities," but we'll see if that comes to fruition. The Lynx is currently available for purchase for $249.99 at the Sirius XM online store, and you can peruse the user guide in the source link below.
