Rumour: FM Radio support to return to Windows Phone 8?

WindowsPhoneMania.pl is not reporting their sources, but have raised the theory that Microsoft ran out of time to deliver FM Radio support for Windows Phone 8, but that this will return in a later update, as it is supported by the hardware.

They also speculate that the Bluetooth stack will be elevated to Bluetooth 4.0, as supported by the chipsets, rather than the current 3.0.

I am not sure in how much demand FM radios are in smartphones, but adding back a feature that was present in all Windows Phone 7.5 handsets can certainly not hurt.
