Forcing it to be a requirement is WRONG.
Radios can be bought cheaply if people want them.
Wireless (Nokia) can add them in, if people want them. This is supply/demand. There's no demand for FM on a cell phone.

Eg. I can listen to radio on my iPhone through CBS radio which is 'software' only, and optional. All manufacturers would have to install FM receivers in ALL devices which may not cost a lot, but enough. If you add a '$5' NAB/radio fee to all devices purchased - do you think that you would enjoy it ?

Also, not to be a killjoy - most radio here is moving to digital.
