[maemo-users] N800 USB and radio

the N800 uses the headphone wires as an antenna. If you plug in your 
headphones and you are in the vicinity of an FM broadcast station you 
will be able to listen.  You can still listen through the speakers on 
the N800 by selecting the appropriate output with the FM radio app.
