Also at CES, XM and Samsung introduced a line of three portables that combine the functions of XM and an MP3 player.
The Samsung Helix XM2go offers XM reception and can store MP3s, WMA files and XM content. The model allows a user to "bookmark" songs heard on XM for online purchase from the XM + Napster service. It'll be available by the end of March and retails for around $400.
Samsung and XM will also offer a portable line of XMP3 digital audio players that receive XM when connected to a docking station. The Samsung NEXUS players can store XM content, MP3s and WMAs. The NEXUS 25 player lists for about $200 and stores up to 25 hours of XM programming; the NEXUS 50 lists for $250 and stores 50 hours. Both will be available in the first quarter and offer the "bookmark" capability.
