Next iPhone To Transmit FM To Your Stereo?

Last week, references to Broadcom’s BMC4329 [PDF] wireless chip were found in the iPhone 3.0 beta seeded to developers. After some digging around, 9to5 Mac has discovered that the new chip has the ability receive information over FM radio frequencies, but can potentially be used to send them as well. One possible use for this could be broadcasting music into a car stereo without the need for an external adapter. It could also be used to receive FM broadcasts on the iPhone.
