    I found this on GSMArena today:
    FM radio might come on Windows Phone 8 devices after update - GSMArena.com news

    That's great news if we get BT4.0 and FM Radio! :)

    Unless the hardware is already within existing devices this will not be happening.

    The Qualcomm WCN3660 chip (Qualcomm) inside the lumia supports FM.

    "...the WCN3660 supports an extensive suite of advanced Wi-Fi connectivity options with multiple Wi-Fi standards. The WCN3660 chip also supports Bluetooth 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 and the worldwide FM radio frequency band."

    So maybe.

    I am not an expert of creating cell phone circuit boards so I could be wrong but I am pretty sure there is more to it then simply saying the chipset supports it. Things like connectors to support an antenna and what not.

    I am not an expert either, but I think you are correct. For example - my BN Nook Color has bluetooth radio on the system chip that can be activated by running a custom ROM. However, there is no antenna, so the BT range is not usable.

    Having FM radio on the chip is nothing but an indicator that there is a slim chance for FM radio. Until we hear anything official from MS/Nokia it's all speculations.

    Well if BT4.0 comes, then I hope my vehicles can support this. Many devices aren't built for future tech compatibilities. I would hate to lose hands free operation while driving; anyone know if the two standards are compatible with each other?
