Nokia Lumia 520 FM radio to be enabled; network testing taking place mid-May.

by Ernest Doku

Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia is thought to be turning on the FM radio feature, in its new low-end Nokia Lumia 520 Windows Phone 8 device.

This comes care of the tech news website My New Machine, from a submission from one of it readers.

That person has contacted Nokia, through its website's live chat feature - entitled Nokia Care Chat.

They asked the Nokia representative about the FM tuner built into the Lumia 520, where the response was -

"In Windows 8 you cannot use the FM facility"

Followed by:

But in future you may use in the Nokia Lumia 520"

Microsoft’s rumoured General Distribution Release (GDR2) update is supposedly going to enable this aspect within Windows Phone 8 - as we reported here.

This is along with double-tapping the screen to awake from standby, with Nokia improvements such as flipping the mobile to silence a ringing phone.

WMPoweruser has reported that carriers will begin testing out this update during this month, news of which was spotted in an Australian network's own forum.
