    Now that we are getting the bluetooth chip unlocked by apple, can we just make an application that enables it to be used as an FM radio reciever for the 2G iPod touch? I know its possible for the chip to be used as one, so can we now? Cause that is the only reason I would ever consider getting a Zune.

    Maybe apple will unlock that part eventually and charge you $20 for it, but as of now I dont think they will enable it.

    It can be used as an FM reciever but its not like turning a switch FM On/Off. Unless apple enables it I wouldnt count on anyone else doing it.

    im pretty sure zunes have antennas. im sure its just internal.


    do we know that the ipod doesnt have an internal antenna?


    i mean cmon even my first mp3 player the rio sport in 2005 had an internal fm antenna. i think just about anything that has fm has an intenna built in.

    iPod Touch has an internal antenna, or else we couldn't use the web from the iPod itself, or iPhone, so that proves that iPod Touch has an internal antenna.
    Oh, by the by, there IS an EASIER WAY TO JAILBREAK an iPod Touch 1g or 2g

    im pretty sure that these types of devices use the headphones that are plugged in as the antenna.
