iBIZ is very close to releasing their SD FM radio

I’m a big fan of SD expansion options and am very excited about the prospect of having an FM radio in my SD slot. This version will work with most Palm OS PDAs, selling for $50. So, how close is it to release? Very. I am lucky enough to have a pre-production unit on its way to me right now and will post a review shortly. Production units should be available in July.
