Sirius XM, blocked on AT&T Android phones

electronista is reporting that Sirius XM, non-Market apps blocked on AT&T Android phones.

AT&T was alleged today to be blocking the use of the Sirius XM app on its Android phones. Both the new HTC Aria and Motorola Backflip prevent downloading of the title as the two have a known, carrier-imposed ban on downloading any apps outside of Android Market, even though the OS itself normally allows this. It’s unclear why Sirius XM’s app isn’t officially in the market itself, but its presence outside Google’s store denies it as an option.

Check out the rest of the report here:
