Some believe that Motorola's new phone with iTunes on board could be coming soon (even though others believe it will never make it to a popular phone). Apple's CEO, Steve Jobs, is giving a keynote speech in January that is often a launching pad for new products. bq. In true Apple style, Cue [Eddy Cue, vice president in charge of applications at Apple] declined to say whether Jobs will indeed address the phone at that event. "What we've talked about is a something that is valuable for the mass market," Cue says. "It has to be a phone in the middle-tier of the market, not a $500-tier phone. It has to be very seamless to use. And we're very happy with the results." It was announced that the two companies would have a product out in the first half of 2005, but Apple is notoriously close lipped about upcoming products.
