Motorola's iTunes Phone At the International Consumer Electronics Show, A Motorola executive previewed an upcoming mobile phone that can play music from Apple's iTunes store. It syncs with computers and the iTunes music store just like an iPod does and even has used the iPod interface for navigating through digital tracks. "The phone is the first of many Motorola devices that will support iTunes this year", said Ron Garriques, president of Motorola's personal devices business. The rumors now circulating say that an iTunes-compatible Motorola phone would be launched this month, possibly at the Macworld conference and expo that opens next week in San Francisco.
Apple already revealed last year that the phone is expected to come along in the first half of 2005. In July last year Motorola made a licensing deal with Apple to use its iTunes music store in its mobile phones. Garriques cited the Apple partnership as an example of Motorola's push into what he called "seamless mobility 2.0." While mobile devices already are allowing consumers to communicate multiple ways and to take digital media with them, the next-generation products will bridge gaps between networks and devices so consumers can access their digital content anywhere and without interruptions.
