Ain't nothing but a Pink thing.

Pioneer Electronics, XM Satellitle Radio and Circuit City teamed with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation to raise money for breast cancer research. Each sale of their brainchild - a pink variation of the Pioneer inno XM2go portable XM raises $30 for breast cancer research.

The Pioneer inno XM2go, the world's first portable player to combine XM’s radio content with the flexibility of MP3 playback, "was awarded the CNET “Best of CES 2006, People’s Voice Award” because of its revolutionary portable, handheld features combining the two most popular forms of audio entertainment: satellite radio and MP3 music. The wearable device, now available in two colors, silver and electric pink, combines live satellite radio “on the go” with a paid subscription* and stored XM content with MP3 and WMA audio files."

Not only will you be adding a sleek stylish device to your already bursting supply chest, you’ll also be donating to a great cause.

Hyundai releases their Roadbank DMB/PMP/GPS Device

What do you want out of a navigation system? Whatever it is, Roadbank's probably got it.
Equipped with a SiRF Star III chip and an SD slot for DivX application, and an AV in/out for integration with an external display, Hyundai's grab at the DMB/PMP/GPS device market seems like a sound business decision. There's been a certain scarcity of Korean representation in the field lately, which probably explains the pricepoints. The Roadbank is modestly priced at about $313-417, not too bad compared to systems with similiar features.
