    well i found out about the new radio on the touch and i was wondering...

    1) Does the ipod touch 8gb 3rd gen have the hardware to do this?

    2) So this radio can work anywhere, not only places with wi-fi?

    3) Any ideas when its gonna be released?

    Thx

    no one has done a teardown of the 8GB model, so we don't know.

    first one is a good question. i dont care though because 8gb is not enough. 16 was pushing it when i had my iphone. im getting the 32gb 3g touch.


    and release time? im guessing in the next BIG firmware update. not a 3.2 but more like a 4.0 or something like that.. apple will want to make it a big deal... lol

    dont think so because cycorder already had the drivers in place for the camera so the ipod knew the hardware was there, there are no drivers in place to tell the ipod it actually has a radio

    yea but the bluetooth drivers where there from the iphone so I assume thats how that was developed, not sure but I dont think there are any for any sort of FM radio....could be wrong though

    iBluetooth still can't do all that much though. We're still limited to what we can and cannot use for wireless devices.

    guess we will have to find out when apple releases it, tho i wouldnt think they would release it as late as 4.0
