iTunes, Motorola: The MotoTunes Phone –Postponed?
“If any one can show just cause why they may not be lawfully joined together, let them speak now or forever hold their peace.” It looks as though they’re postponing the debut of the Motorola-iTunes capable phone. This past Thursday (03/10/2005) at CeBIT, Motorola was supposed to unveil their iTunes mobile handset. Apple and Motorola decided to delay the unveiling of this revolutionary phone due to causes that are not 100% known. Does this mean the end of the iPod? Personally I think not. I’m excited to see the phone but would be hesitant to invest in one. The issue I have with such mergers of technology is battery life, the ‘oh so essential’ aspect of all portable electronics that no manufacturer is able to avoid. I figure that my iPod lasts me a good 5-6 hours, and my Sidekick (mobile phone) lasts me approximately 15 hours. If these two were to share a battery, I’d probably have to feed my handset a proper charge 2 times a day as opposed my current nightly charge. In most day to day scenarios, that’s too much effort for me. However, I beg for Motorola and Apple to prove me wrong! Please!
