Sprint to add FM radio to smartphones – too little, too late?My

My Fly Ying
Yes it is! (Later than Sprint thinks!) I read the "news" delivered by Paul Riismandel on radiosurvivor ::: "The biggest radio news to come out of CES this week was Sprint’s announcement that it struck a deal to integrate FM radio tuners in some of its smartphones."[LinK]

Here's my 2 centsworth ::: My Fly Ying dual-sim hIphone has FM and TV - REAL tuners, not screwy apps - I've had the phone for more than two years now and even though I don't make calls on it at this time, I use the phone to listen to the radio and to make easy-to-transfer video files.

My actual smartphone is a BlackBerry, but the camera on it is a real piece of crap. On the bright side, I was able to move all of my Fly Ying Chinaphone stuff over to the BB. I wrote back in early 2012 when I activated the BB: "The only thing I'm going to miss is the built-in FM radio on the Chinaphone, but I'll live with that (or at least try to)."

If only I could figure out how to macgyver my old kyocera wildcard so I could use it as a camera, I'd be on Cloud 9!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
