With the recent news that cell phone maker Motarola is partnering up with Apple Computers to offer iTunes on cellular phones, does anyone plan to buy such a phone? If you had the phone, would you mod it to make it a portable iTunes player, or something along those lines?

Well, duh! If it had those options, and an mp3 player period, that would be a good deal. With iTunes in the game, well, that's like cheating. Unfortunatly, I may hold back. Locked into Sprint PCS Plan w/ my Visor Treo 300. It treats me well.
And for those looking into a PDA phone, they have em' cheap on the eBay! Bought mine for $135 and it works very well.

I had sprint once, back in the day. It was the most miserable experience I have ever had. The service sucked really bad too. Doesn't sprint run on their own proprietary network that is not compliant with any others. I am with Cingular now, granted they don't have the latest and greatest technology, they have great coverage, and thats really important. I heard about this apple and motorola venture a while back. I really hope this goes through. If Motorola come out with a device that is compatible with iTunes and it play mp3's, Apple may be in trouble. I know for myself, that I would rather have only one device in my pocket, and with advancement, motorola could really take some marketshare. I think apple should try to get a piece of this or something.

Well, if apple plns to do this, Moterola will most likey be paying for the liscense to the itunes code anyway. plus, in the past, all in one devices always lacked completness in some area, not to mention they cost an arm and a leg.
