iTunes phone
The iTunes phone keeps showing up in the news, but unseen. In the GSM market, a phone that is ready to be released, is released. Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola have their mobile phone line en masse in tons of shops here in Australia, and also in Singapore, and Malaysia.

Not the iTunes phone though: It needs to be manufactured by one company, approved by the next, and then be “accepted” by the phone companies. By the time it is sold, the design would be months old. Get it out there already.

It better be a good phone it its own right: Somehow I don’t see iTunes Music Store compatibility being a major plus to someone selecting a mobile phone. In fact at this moment, when it comes to mobile phones, would you choose:
Apple is really successful with the iPod. If they are keen on the mobile phone market as well, they aren’t doing very well.

On a miserable note, all this talk of mobile phones and iPods is just trivia, to all those people struggling to live their lives, around the World.
