    Thanks Tyler. Now if Sirius and XM can get some good quality content on cell phones (ie Howard) and eventually get just a 5% penetration rate you are talking another 10 million subscribers.

    Cell phone audio entertainment will make the iPod obsolete within a few years. The iPod is history.

    So basically as we head into 2008 there are probably just as many cell phone subscribers in the US as there are cars on the road - 230 million.

    Cell phones are a distribution channel that just cannot be ignored.

    1. Cars
    2. internet
    3. Cell Phones

    Its a no brainer for radio distribution.

    Tyler - I would like to see you write an article on the whole cell phone strategy from satellite radio. From what I have read Sirius has a deal with Sprint and XM has deals with AT&T and Alltel. I would like to see some insight into future moves, the possibility for satellite chipsets in cellphones and maybe even an interview with people from the 2 companies.

    Here is a Forbes article from 2006 on this topic. It has comments from analyst David Bank from RBC
