BlackBerry 7.1 Adds FM Radio to BlackBerry Curve 9360 & 9380

BlackBerry 7.1 FM Radio

I am not sure how many others are excited about this but I think its a pretty cool side feature. I used to love the FM radio on my Nokia ages ago and its cool to see RIM is sort of bringing it back. They just announced that the FM Radio API we heard about a bit before will be coming with OS 7.1 on the BlackBerry Curve 9360 and 9380. I am not sure why the CDMA variants were left out but I am guessing it has to do with the different chipsets.

Either way anybody else looking forward to the radio feature? It simply uses your headphones as a FM radio antenna.

  1. Very disappointing that the flagship model 9900 does not have this feature…

  2. It has to do with it having a Marvell chipset instead of the Snapdragon Qualcomm chipsets in the higher end BlackBerry 7 devices. Still it would have been cool on all of them!

    • Thats what I mean – of course the “flagship” model should have the “best” chipset as well … or else – it is no longer a flagship…

      Always make the falgships/ambassadors first – then the “economy models” after…

  3. It’s like the 9500 storm having touchscreen but no wifi :)
    They can’t make a phone with all the accessories in it :(

  4. When will this coming to Bold?

  5. I want my curve back :(
