You might as well skip the rest of this waffle and head for the comments now. Go on, you know you want to. Lingo iMini DAB/FM receiver for iOS Lingo's iMini: puts DAB on your pad Ah, didn’t …
Can anyone use this 'de facto' port? Something becomes 'de facto' because everyone uses it without it having to be made the official solution. Currently only Apple can use the port.

I may not be the target audience for this as I have no DAB radios other than the one that came with my car (handy for 6 Music and R5 Sports Extra for clear and uninterrupted by shipping forecast TMS).
But, if I'm using my iPhone or iPad, a great app like Tune Radio (for a quid or so) let's me stream all the DAB stations and more. And record them. Works fine for me on 3G too. So why pay extra for this?
