it seems the new nano, even though it has fm tuner and voice recorder and video recorder, it cannot record from fm.

I'd love to be wrong, but that's what I'd read.

and

http://www.theiphoneblog.com/2009/09/09/ipod-nano-video-camera-fm-tuner-travel/
says that the nano will record off the airwaves for 15 min but that's it.
and you can pause the radio and tags songs you want to record, but that's not the same thing.

and this

says you can record radio, but all it is, is that you pause live radio, which may be where the 15 min comes in, but if you change the station you lose it.
My question is, even if I had a short session to record, would I be able to save that recording for later review? Doubtful unless I do nothing else with the ipod during the mean time.
