Information about the Chip:

Bluetooth Specification version 2.1 + EDR (up to 3 Mbps) compliant, with provisions for supporting future specifications
One driver software architecture for easy migration from existing embedded WLAN and Bluetooth devices as well as future devices
thx for the info but this does not answer my ?
"This chipset also offers FM support, but Apple has displayed zero interest in FM historically, and there are no signs of that trend changing."
So yes, it does have an FM chip
Have you heard of anyone doing anything with the FM functionality with the Chip? None of us have. If no one has heard of it, nothing is happening. If you want something to happen, ask the developers out there to do something. Pitch it to them. Make it seem feasible, viable, make it worth their time. Radio isn't really the most needed or listened to thing anymore, with the Internet being the way it is right now.
Ya but wifi is not every where....
And not many people listen to the Radio either when all the music they want is in their little device. You control your own playlist. You are not at the mercy of the DJ and what they play.
that's pretty interesting, if developers can get access to this it would create great opportunities for apps.
