    Just wondering if there will be an FM radio receiver for the iPod Touch any time soon. I'm talking about something like the "Apple iPod Radio Remote" that is only compatible with the iPod video, classic, and nano. It would be nice to listen to the radio anywhere I have my iPod. Any thoughts?

    There are add-ons that attach to the dock connector that provide fm radio. However, it's very unlikely Apple will ever put one on an iPod anything.

    I was actually wondering about this as it would be great idea. Sometimes it's nice to have a change from your music... I think it would be a great idea for the ipod touch 3rd gen.

    Fm receiver on Itouch

    I'm thinking of buying an itouch as a present but am disappointed that there is no fm receiver- the person uses the radio on the move a lot. Is there a way round this or is it likey that something will be released similar to the receiver I use on my Nano? Does anyone know?

    Kensington makes one that not only receives FM, but transmits it as well for use in the car.

    The 2G Touch has a Bluetooth reciever for Nike+iPod support, and I've read that it supports FM...why is Apple so against the radio?? This is one place where Microsoft wins with their Zunes.
