FM radio  might come on Windows Phone 8 devices after update - read the full textWindows Phone 7.x supported FM radio from day one, but the arrival of Windows Phone 8 axed the support for that feature. As it turned out though, all the currently available WP8 smartphone have the required hardware inside and it's the software that caused this. What's missing is apparently some...

People who say 'wow' to what is basically a huge 'bug of omission' being patched make me regret being a WP fan.
I am really displeased by lack of basic features even my SonyEricsson feature phone has. I have an equalizer and separate volume controls for ringtone and music FFS!

They'll come around though. They'll come around.

It is funny how people says "woww" to a radio applicaton which is extremely old in android and even in symbian. Before buying a windowsphone, have a look on this article: http://blogs.windows.com/windo...one-7-8.aspx
