What's the point of a color screen if not? Please don't say, "album art".

If there is a screen, a hard drive, and an input method, it can be hacked, no?

Looking forward to seeing album art for the first time in like five years.

It does come with the car kit. And for me I listen to Sirius most of the time in the car. Most people listen to the radio only in the car. Many people will get the home kit to listen at home, but if not you can still listen to all your stored content at home with your headphones.

Do you need the home docking station to download your mp3's?

I am trying to understand this, how would you be able to download MP3's without the home dock? Will this unit hook up directly to a computer? Will it charge it as well without the homedock?

I am pretty sure it will be hooked up via a USB Cable. The S50 comes with an AC adapter for charging the battery, NONE of which require the home cradle kit.

I would imagine you would be able to record satellite content from the car dock, but this would only be while the car is on, right? I'm just trying to figure out how much this device will meet my needs before I shell out the money for it.

Yes you can record content while its in the car. You can also get a cig adapter that plugs into AC and use the car cradle in the house, though the home cradle would be much more convenient.

Can I velcro the S50 antenna to my hat, plug the A/C adapter into a battery, and hook the car adapter to my belt as a portable solution?

Does the unit have the capability to transmit to an FM station on it's own, or does it have to be docked in the car/home cradle?

I'd say it does have to be in the kit, but that is a good question. Hopefully they'll be released soon and we can ask these questions to someone who has it.
