Does anyone know if the Ipod will ever come out with a radio built-in?

since the 4th gen. ipod came out then you should wait for the radio to come out since this one doesn’t have one.

Not true, Doug.  The iPod does have limited recording capability built in.  I remember reading that you can record up to six seconds in Mono by using the left earphone.

that’s the one negative I’ve found about the ipod, the lack of a radio…I wonder if at some point they won’t create an add on or something to that sort

You would think Belkin would release some sort of FM add on…

I’ve also heard that sound quality isn’t great, and battery life sucks.  Man, you would think for something so popular….    :|

The 4G has a 12 hour battery life. That’s a major boost from the 3G.

And bad sound quality? Nobody would buy one if their music sounded like crap.

On the new models, yes they are finally adding in a better battery.  This is a quote about the sound I saw from IGN’s review of the 40GB Model :

The sound from the MiniDisc was consistently better than the iPod on all fronts, even the WAV file, which is when I knew something was wrong. When a compressed file sounds better than the original WAV file, the difference in sound quality has to be attributed to the unit. This isn’t to say the iPod sounds bad, it just doesn’t sound that good. MiniDisc is known for its great sound quality, but I was disappointed by the iPod’s sound. I understand that I am an audiophile and that the bass problem is one most of you wont have, but overall, the iPod doesn’t sound that good. Distortion was prevalent with almost every EQ, and that was on WAV files, not MP3. Mike has always written that the iPod sounded the worst of all the HDD players, and I can verify it’s true.

That was a review of the 3rd Generation iPod, FYI.
