Default [THINKTANK] FM Radio from I9000

Would it possible if the FM Radio app from the int galaxy s was ported to the vibrant? Is there issues with the Vibrant's radio that make it incompatible? I see it as replacing a factory radio in a car with an aftermarket one with more features but does the same thing

There is already a thread on this somewhere here. I believe the consensus was that the Vibrant doesn't have the hardware for the FM radio.

Was that completely confirmed that the hardware is absent from the unit?
I know the camera is, but perhaps this was something that could have not been left out of the PCB footprint/components???

Just playing devil's advocate.

Im pretty sure that it has already been confirmed that the Vibrant does have the FM reciever AND the FM transmitter hardware.

If from what everyone is saying around the net. That the GPS chip that's in the samsung vibrant, is the broadcom Incontrol 20751. Then not only it has a FM receiver, but there's also a FM transmitter there as well.
