Where did you see the FM radio function? and it has a TV-Out via the headphone connector…

I remember watching on the net where it said that the international version does indeed have a built in hardware FM tuner (you have to make sure to plug in headphones though, they act as your antenna). I even saw a demo of this app.

So unless T-Mobile totally removed the hardware chip (I wouldn’t say to be very likely) it should still be there. but seems for sure on international version
