Samsung has introduced two new XM portable players — the previously announced Nexus and the Helix. Both have hard drives and support MP3 / WMA playback as well as recording XM content for later playback.

The Nexus, with its black and white screen, will come in at $199 and $299 price points. However, with the Nexus you can only play back live XM while docked. Lame.

The Helix, with a full color screen, will come in at $399. However, for that $399 you’ll get a built-in antenna that will let you listen to live XM on the go!
