    Satellite radio broadcaster Sirius XM has developed an in-vehicle docking station for the iPhone and iPod Touch, which gives the devices the full capabilities of satellite radio.

    The product has been dubbed “SkyDock” and will soon become available to US consumers for $120.

    Once docked, the consumer’s iPhone can reportedly pick up satellite radio signals using the device, regardless of the signal strength of the phone itself.

    Few details on the SkyDock have been released as yet, however the story has leaked throughout technology-focused media in the US.

    As Sirius XM caters for the US satellite radio market, it is unlikely that the SkyDock itself will become available in the Middle East.

    With a number of companies such as Worldspace and S2M openly expressing their interest in MENA’s developing satellite radio market, similar technology could be made available to the region’s consumers in the future, should the market gain the necessary momentum.
