SiriusXM in the works for Android platform from Teleca

Whether that’s through some new hardware running Android, or apps for all Android devices is unknown at the moment. With that said, it would make sense that they build apps for all to hit the masses, since Pandora, and other streaming music apps have found success. We may hear more about this at MWC next week as well.
