Oh, that's a shame then.
It only takes about 1 cent/penny worth of tiny parts to connect the FM antenna pin to the wired headset jack.
Of course more than 50% of phones sold today lack the same penny worth of parts too. Every recent Nexus, every iPhone, every recent Samsung or Motorola flagship. most flagships sold in North America,...
Software maintenance costs for an FM app could be more than that though, especially for a limited sales device.But if it's a Qualcomm FM/combo chip, Qualcomm has a free, open source app available that's even included in a few CM11 ROMs.
