Looking for a tiny, USB rechargeable FM radio?

Does a pocket sized, headphones-only FM radio that can be recharged via USB exist?

I would probably go with something like this. It is cheap and has a built in battery and does FM radio. Plus it does mp3s.

The newest version of the iPod Nano has a radio and is quite small and recharges on USB plus has about 8 gigs of storage for you music, books, etc. No movies on this one though.

Already have an iPhone so not bothered about other media playback, but that Coby is cheap even if it’s more than I need.

Yeah, this is pretty much any canadian tire mp3 player, except some of them use a AAA battery.

I love my new iPod Nano.

I haven’t seen any recent MP3 players (including iPod and Sansa) that don’t have an FM radio option included.

It’s frustrating that the iPhone doesn’t have a basic FM radio function. Does anyone know if it’s technically capable of it through a software upgrade?

@jfjuk – Technically, there is not a hardware FM tuner in a iPhone. I’m expecting to see one in the next iPhone.

My old Samsung MP3 player has one, but they don’t make it any more. The closest thing to it that they still make is the YP-U3, which is a bit bigger. The Sansa Clip is my fave, and it has the added advantages of being cheap and still in production. The newer iPod Nanos also qualify, but they cost a lot more than the Sansa. Even the higher models of Sansa with more features than the Nano cost less!

@jfjuk Yet another reason I love my Droid X; built-in FM tuner. Granted, I usually stream internet simulcasts of my favorite FM stations, but I do have the FM option only a button press away.
