iTunes on the Move

A cellphone which incorporates Apple's iTunes music player software is finally set to be launched after repeated delays. The device, made by Motorola, is expected to be unveiled next week, although both those firms and Cingular, whose network the phone will work on, declined to comment.

Roger Entner, a research analyst, said he'd been told by company sources that the device was finally ready for launch. It was originally touted to be unveiled at a trade show in February, but that plan was scrapped at the last minute.

Many phone firms are looking to launch new products which incorporate masses of music in an attempt to take on the success of the iPod. It's not yet known whether the phone will allow users to send tracks directly from their computer or if they'll have to buy them and download them over WAP.
