I IMAGINE that the future of radio will combine traditional FM with the technology of smart phones.
I’m not talking about the distant future: the fm broadcast protocols already exist and most cell phones already have an fm radio chip, although you’d never know it. Chris Burns wonders why. In his article for SlashGear.com and he explains how you can find out if your phone has the chip:
“A whole bunch of smartphones out on the market today have FM radio capabilities – but their owners don’t know it.”
