    I really like the idea myself. Some stations only stream using a flash plug in...and we know where that's going. And for new buyers, it allows them to listen to the radio without burning up your precious data, not to mention you don't have to worry about buffering, or being out of range of those wonderful towers.

    Why complain about more features? And look at it like this...if I'm listening to the radio via the FM tuner instead of streaming over AT&T's network, then I'm freeing up bandwidth for all you data sucking whores!

    I don't think that many in the US realise that FM radio is pretty standard in most phones in Europe and Asia. Remember, the market for the Iphone is larger outside the US.
    With the recent withdrawal of Unlimited data contracts, it becomes even more useful. HD radio or DAB "Digital Audio Broadcast" as is it is called outside the US is a natural progression from FM tuners. When I go jogging in the morning I like to listen to the radio and end up taking two devices.

    I am lost as to why some of you didn't understand Sziklassy's post.

    Like him, the only time I'm ever not in range for Internet radio is when I'm in a car on a road trip and am currently in the middle of nowhere. Was it really that tough to infer?

    A HD Radio in the iphone would ROCK, everyone don`t live in the city, thank God. Out here, being able to pick up your local radio would be great when you out running or what ever.

    Using the headphone wires for the antenna is not a good thing for A2DP users.
