The folks at Sirius are brimming with news this morning (seriously, pace yourself guys). Between their announcements of the Stiletto 2 handheld satellite radio and their partnership with wireless home audio mavens Sonos , news of their latest Sportster 5 plug-and-play receiver snuck right past us. The car-friendly Sportster offers a full-color screen with selectable color schemes that will do a much better job of integrating with pimped-out car interiors where monochrome just won't do. Other features include a real-time sports ticker, FM transmitter, 30 presets, and the ability to pause and rewind up to 60 minutes of live radio. The Sportster 5 will go on sale in the fall with a price tag of $169.
