XM Satellite Radio expects some 80,000 Delphi XM SKYFi "boom box" units to ship to retailers in the first half of this year, marking the company's major entry into the home and portable segment of the audio market.
"XM's accelerating subscriber growth has been fueled by our 'third launch' into the home and portable markets with our next-generation SKYFi family of products from Delphi, including XM's first portable boom box radio, which will be a big part of our 2003 march to exceed 1 million subscribers," said XM President/CEO Hugh Panero.
"This product exceeded our sales goals for 2002 with approximately 100,000 units sold to retailers. We expect great things from the SKYFi boom box in 2003," Delphi Chairman, President/CEO J.T. Battenberg III.
XM had more than 360,000 subscribers as of Jan. 8.
