Apple Bringing FM Radio to iPhone with Radio.app?
Your iPod has FM. Why not your iPhone?
9to5mac reports they've got a source who says this exact app is in the works for the iPhone. Supposedly we're all waiting on the integration of MobileMusicStore (iTunes.app) with this - basically, if you're listening to a station in the US that supports tagging, you'll be listening to a song, tap an info button or something to grab all the info on that song, and be able to click to purchase it straight from your iPhone/iPod Touch.
The iPhone/iPod Touch have been able to receive FM for a while now - it's how they talk to the Nike+ line of products. Turning that on for device owners to listen to the radio would be great, and also a ton of additional revenue for Apple and artists. Or at least Apple and labels.
Their source mentions iPod.app might even see some FM functionality before the release of Radio.app proper.

old news, I saw evidence of a radio app in the LocalizedApplicationNames.strings some weeks ago ... but I thought it was just something they tested ... if an actual app would be released, that would be cool

Does the iPhone 3G accept FM signals?
Don't forget to hit "THANKS" if the information was helpful!

Do the iPhone and iPhone3G have this technology built in or is it only the most recent line of hardware?

the important part would be if the iphone could transmit radio because then you could walk in your car and turn on the radio and hear you iphone

the iphone3g and 3gs dont have an FM receiver if u did dont u think the ppl at i fix it would have noticed it they noticed the hidden bluetooth chip in the ipod touch and they werent even looking for it
its probly gonna b a database at apple that takes all radio stations and sends them over 3g if att lets them
or we have 2 wait for next gen iphone lol

i really dont think this would happen on the 2g & 3g due to hardware limitations.... never know though maybe Apple wants this for ALL iPhones

What's really been a pain for some of these radio apps is the inability to listen local sport teams play . I wonder if they will find a way to block it on thos app as well?

I've had other mp3 players that have had an FM transmitter. I used it for about 2 minutes and then forgot about it.
