I just got my new BlackBerry 8800 and was wondering if anyone has one and is listening to XM on it?

I cant seem to figure out so far.. maybe not possible?

Sorry...but to the best of my knowledge, it can't be done.

In order to decode the XM Online stream, you need an app capable of reading and decoding Windows Media formats. To my knowledge, there is no such app that can do that on a Blackberrrrry.

I think XM works on the BlackJack, not the Blackberrys. Even then, I believe it's only some stations.

Yep it does... just make sure you have a good data plan though... otherwise you will get hooped for bandwidth.

I know my chick said she can use her motorola Q to listen to the stream but the battery on the Q is shit...So not a very good option

i use this to listen on my pocket pc: www.xstreamxm.com/mobile/. however, as stated above, it plays through windows media player.
thank god my work pays for the plan. i couldn't imagine how much it costs to stream at least 7 hours a day.
