Sep 02 2005 - 02:03 PM ET | Motorola, Rumor

More information has come out about the Motorola ROKR (which is expected to be formally announced on Wednesday). T-Mobile Germany and O2 in the UK are both expected to carry the phone, in addition to Cingular Wireless in the US. The ROKR is expected to be the first phone to ship with Apple's iTunes software on board. Additionally, it will be the first device authorized to play files purchased from the iTunes music store other than the iPod.

Apple rumor site ThinkSecret believes the phone will come in two versions, one with 256MB of memory and one with 512MB. This is more than original reports suggested, even the business magazine Forbes stated recently that the phone would only be able to hold 25 songs. The ThinkSecret report also notes that Cingular subscribers will be able to purchase songs over-the-air, this is the first we've heard of that.

MobileTracker will bring you live shots of the ROKR on the day of its announcement.
