    Since we are getting a unlocked bluetooth chip, do you think now we can develop with it? Such as using the Blue tooth chip as an FM radio receiver?

    If it didn't happen in 2.X, don't expect 3.X to happen.

    If we could, that'd be awesome. Is it possible to use a bluetooth chip as an FM receiver?

    Also, teslanaut, in 2.x, if I'm not mistaken, the bluetooth chip wasn't activated. Now that it is, perhaps we'll be able to use it.

    So it really wouldn't be too much of a shock if someone made a jailbroken app to make use of it. Maybe Skylar would be interested, he said that he's lacking a challenge.

    There might be off-chip FM receiver amplifier and antenna required or other hardware circits, that iPod might not have :> So don't make hope for it

    Besides analog FM radio technology is slowly dying, so theres no sence to add it ;] wait for DAB
