Cingular will carry the upcoming iTunes phone from Motorola according to a report [sub req] in the Wall Street Journal this morning.

It's not known if this phone will be apart of the ROKR family.

The report cites an Apple media event on September 7th as a likely launch venue, but iPod enthusiast sites have noted this could be also be the launching pad for a video enabled iPod. The invitation reads:

"1,000 songs in your pocket changed everything. Here we go again."
