iPod HiFi FM Radio

Does anyone know if the iPod HiFi incorporates the FM radio like the FM Radio Remote?

If not, does anyone think it would be too tough to put an FM Remote into the HiFi dock connection?

No, I'm not planning on buying one, I am just curious yellow.

TIA,
Rob

No FM Radio in the iPod HiFi.

There is no dock connector in it either, the only inputs are audio in and power.

Oh, I see. I thought the iPod "docked" on the top. Thanks for the info!

It does, sorry I misunderstood, I thought you were asking if the HiFi had a dock connector on the back for plugging into the computer (similar to the iPod Dock and a bunch of other speakers) and you wanted to plug the radio remote into that.

The iPod does dock on the top and it would be cool if the HiFi had integrated FM radio. It would be even cooler if it had built in WiFi and some sort of screen in the middle so you could use it as both a remote speaker playing music from your Mac and control playback through it as well.
