Re: Norwegians switched

My phone has no FM :( my last one did. The argument is you can just use internet radio, yes, the same internet radio that eats battery faster, uses chargeable data and wont work where you have poor cell coverage. Sigh.

Partly I think it's the move to bluetooth, as portable receivers typically use the headphone cable as an antenna. And partly analogue tuning and searching for stations (even with auto-tuning) probably doesn't appeal to those who like clicking on an icon.
