E71: RDS or NOT?

Some of national Nokia’ pages (Polish: see screenshot, or German one: link here) show in detailed specification of E71 that the device supports RDS feature for FM radio. It’s not indeed. Build in radio application allows checking list of available FM stations using known for some time Visual Radio service which uses data transmission and server content, while real RDS (Radio Data System) takes details about station using FM radio waves. RDS is more useful as it can display the name of currently played song, or some local news. All of it for free. It’s a pity! :/
