    Yes, I just found this news article. It appears that the iPod touch may be getting a similar radio to the Nano, with the FM chip found inside! check it out Here
    Here's the direct link to the source Here

    If all apple does is add that one little function, no better bluetooth support or FM transmitting, I won't really give two squirts to update.

    That's weird... so the iPod has always been able to receive FM? It was only used in Nike+...

    Rumor, I'd like to point out.

    Still, it'd be nice, and possible. However, I doubt that the 2G will get it... Sorry guys...

    Well, if it does come true, it will stop all the "Zune HD has radio and iPod touch doesn't" rubbish. (No offense, but it is a little silly.)

    Actually, the Zune HD's HD radio is a nice feature. Where I live, I have atleast one radio station that has almost, if not all, of the music I listen to. It's great.

    Yeah, I believe it is just high quality. But, living in the DFW area (Dallas, Fort Worth), there are plenty of HD radio staions, and just normal stations.
