Motorola’s iTunes phone finally here

The long-awaited iTunes music phone from Motorola Inc. and Apple Computer Inc. will be introduced Wednesday and could be in stores later this week.
Motorola’s new phone, which will operate on the Cingular Wireless network, will be “the next generation of Swiss Army Knife cell phones,” said Mitch Mitchell, an A.T. Kearney vice president, combining functions of Apple’s iPod music player with voice, messaging and other cell phone features.
Other mobile phone-makers, including Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung, have introduced music phones or plan to do so soon, but Motorola’s version–based on Apple’s pioneering and popular iTunes format–has generated the most interest.
