FM radio for the bathroom - followup

This is a follow-up to my previous post about an FM radio for the bathroom morning routine.

The good old Samsung Galaxy S (i9000) does a wonderful job. Its stand-by time is more than a week even if we leave the GSM_RF part powered all the time (otherwise we would need to switch it on every time we need the FM radio). The loudspeaker volume and quality are very pleasant.

I even found a smaller 3.5mm jack to sacrifice and now it looks even better without effect on the received signal.

Long live radio!

Case closed :)
