i-Sirius

Has anyone ever heard of i-Sirius? They are brand new on the scene of cell phone applicants. They seemed to be cloaked in secrecy. We don't know if there is any relationship, but we are keeping an eye on this one. The dot over the "i" seems to signify a satellite.

Can you give us readers some information on where you found this? Thanks.

I saw it mention either at SSG or at Orbitcast . One of those two websites had something about it about one to two weeks ago . But it was a small article and didn't come to any conclusion . It was more of a mention that they had heard it was coming .

This is incredible info. From first glance at your link it looks like Motorola is involved. Could this actually be a Sirius radio/ cellphone??? Tell us more!

Also intriguing is the "i" part of i-Sirius. This could imply an Apple connection. Is there any connection to Sirius? Nobody knows.

My first thought when I saw Mororola's name Bert was that they have given up on their iRadio plan and replaced it with iSirius. How much fun to speculate.

To me cell phones are the way to go for portable radio. 230 million cars out there and just as many cellphones. To me cell phones are a natural fit. Howard's show on a cellphone? - Thats a sub draw to me.

This is quite interesting as they are probably trying to compete with Terrestar. Sirius already has satellite capacity in the sky, a massive amount of content and launching a mvno on the cell side should be no problem. All they need are the handsets - enter motorola.

The phone is a regular cell phone, its a fixed phone for customers that dont have access to landline phones. here is a sample link of the cell phone company in México that sells it.
