New iPhone to Have FM Radio Transmitter?

Adding some more information to the rumor that next generation iPhone will feature Broadcom chip BCM4329 that will enable Next Generation iPhone to Support 802.11n Wi-Fi?, 9to5mac is reporting that

BCM4329 also adds the ability to receive and send (the previous model could only receive) information through FM radio signals which theoretically could be used to broadcast sound into car stereos..without external adapters. It could also be used to pick up FM radio music, news and sports broadcasts on their iPhones and even, in August, on iPods. Currently the FM reciever is only used to pick up communications from the Nike+ peripheral.

MobileDevDesign points out:

The BCM4329’s FM transmit capabilities enable consumers to stream music directly from their mobile devices to car stereos or home theater systems without special adapters or bulky cables. With the FM receiver, users can get real-time traffic information as well as music, news, and sports broadcasts on their mobile devices.

As discussed earlier some guyz are also reporting that new iPhone will also have video editing feature. So, this sums up in a huge pile of iPhone Rumors.

So, which ones have greater chances  to be bundled in next-Gen iPhone? Let us know your views.
