If CES has taught me anything, it's that Android can pop up where you least expect it. Case in point: the SiriusXM booth, where the satellite radio giant is introducing its Lynx portable radio system.
Announced late last month, the Lynx is a three-in-one device that can dock in your car, in your home, or act as a regular in-pocket player. It's WiFi-connected for updates and syncing -- and for content. When docked, it'll pull in all the SiriusXM channels, shows and music that you get from the SiriusXM Internet service. And it features some pretty cool features including "Tune Start", which restarts the song if you've tuned in halfway through.
And did we mention that Android is lurking beneath? You wouldn't necessarily know it, as the Lynx has a UI that's pure SiriusXM, but it's there (check out the "caution" warning below-- recognize that?). The Lynx will be hitting retailers soon for a cool $250, and the friendly reps at the booth were nice enough to walk us through exactly what the Lynx is capable of, and how Android makes it all possible. Hit the break for the video and some photos.
