XT860: Why no official FM radio support

Not sure about Droid 3 exactly, but my XT860 which is essentially the same phone has official FM radio support. It is not in plain sight though - FM radio is accessible via the Music application - the connected music player. When you start it, and pick "radio" you get presented with option to use online radio (shoutcast) or FM radio.

For FM radio to work, you need headset attached (to act as antenna).

Re: XT860: Why no official FM radio support

Just to clarify - this message carried over D3 forumrs. XT860 4G has FM radio support natively since day one in the connected music player. The only requirement is wired headset attached (which acts as antenna).
