    There have been rumors for a while that Apple was going to introduce a FM radio app for the newest generation iPod touch and iPhone. Thanks to iFixit's teardown we can see the iPad uses the same Broadcom BCM4329 chip that is capable of tuning in radio stations. We just need Apple to turn on the software support in the OS. Maybe we'll see this added to the list of features in iPhone OS v4 this summer?

    I have the external FM tuner that was required with the first gen Nano. Does anyone think it can work on the iPad?
