    There is an ebay iPod listed which claims some features of which I was not aware. They are:

    Camera, FM Stereo Tuner, Games, Video Recorder, World Clock

    Are the Radio, Video Recorder and Camera features really available?

    27" i7 iMac, 24" iMac, 13" Macbook Air, iPhone 5 & 5S, iPod Nano 7th Gen, iPad 2 16GB WiFi, iPad 3
    None of the iPod Nano's have come with any of those features expect the FM Stereo tuner that it does have. The iPod Nano has grown and shrunk and grown again in size, but that's about it..

    I believe the newest 7th generation nano can play video..

    The iPod Touch can do all the things listed there, but not sure if it comes with the FM Stereo tuner..

    I have a 4th generation iPod nano. As far as I know there is no FM Tuner so is it possible to add this feature or is it only built into some models?

    An FM Tuner requires that physical piece of hardware - you can't add it.

    There was an "add-on" you could get. The tuner was built in beginning with the 5th gen.

    I have the 6th gen iPod Nano which does have the FM tuner and I assumed that they all did..almost would make sense that they should've..but oh well..

    That's good to know. As an early Sony Walkman fan I am surprised that it took Apple so long to add a tuner feature. Furthermore it should ultimately be possible to record from it as you could with the Walkman although the quality wasn't brilliant if you were out and about.

    I think that the buyer of the item on eBay may have cause for complaint as the consensus seems to be that the tuner wasn't available before the 5th generation.
