    Default Nexus One now a step closer to FM radio

    As you may or may not be already aware, the Nexus One and HTC Desire have the same Broadcom chip. Seems trivial at cursory glance until you realize the Desire has a FM radio app, which should ergo be just as feasible on the Google-branded device. Cut to xda-developers' intersectRaven, who's released a custom N1 kernel that theoretically brings life to the FM receptor. It's available to download, but as for when you'll get a chance to really use this yourself, that's entirely up to the custom ROM developers updating their respective wares. For his part, Paul O'Brien said today he's already got it working on an upcoming Froyo Sense build for the device -- hang tight, folks, it's coming.

    If Google doesn't do this, then its indeed up to custom ROM developers.
    Anyway, I still ask myself why Google has omitted this "normal" feature?

    Why did they omitted trackball wake and trackball notifications settings too?
    Someties makers forget to listen to people simple needs!
    But anyway it's nothing compared to iphone's users complaints about BT, at least XDA devs can use Desire Rom + modified kernel to get FM
