yes, and there is apparently soon going to be a 100$ aftermkt car radio.
Also, on the conf call, HPanero discussed the educational effort going on at GM dealerships all over the country, which is obviously expensive but will come to end, although there's Honda, Toyota, Audi, etc, as well. Oh my what a horrible problem. I think it's quite rare to see a brand new product, in a "new space", with such an extensive and incentivised distribution netwprk
WMart hasn't even begun their effort yet, but it's my understanding that they will be making XM a "head of the isle" display as part of their attempt to distinguish themselves as "cutting edge" electronic retailers in order to compete with Best Buy and Circuit City. There will of course have to be an educational effort there as well.
