Samsung Galaxy S4:Flagship phone leaves behind poor FM radio!

We had run an article on the unique set of sensors Samsung would have in its Flagship but the one basic flagship that Samsung has decided to give a miss is the trusty old FM radio in its new flagship the Samsung Galaxy S4!
One large step back!!
This move comes as a surprise and almost a rude shock to many who consider it another step towards Appleziation of the droid (Apple never cared for FM radio on their products as they had to peddle their i-tunes store)

While this was the official statement released by Samsung Russia
 "Our studies show a trend shift of interest to digital broadcasting, specifically – focus on listening to music content in social networks or on the channel YouTube. The flagship model of our products are focused on customers who use digital content, which use modern formats and channels of information consumption. (translated from Russian)."
 we are not convinced!

In India this could make the phone a laughing stock for sure, for too long we have mocked iphone users for lacking what even a 1000INR phone would have-bluetooth! And now people are sure to start cracking jokes on a device rumored to cost 45000+INR to lack a FM radio.

For starters FM is growing like crazy in India, be it colleges, homes, Autos, Parks or even your trusty old barbershops FM is the voice around us.

Sure Samsung will now bundle some Music service to sweeten the deal but it will never come close to replace the friendly and witty chatter of most of our RJs dole out when we are stuck in traffic on our endless commute home.

What is even more disappointing is that Samsung has packed this device with a host of premium apps for free, a miniscule fraction of the cost of these apps could have got the radio on this device.

Lets see what Bond has to say on this!

Heard that Samsung?????!!
