Apple and Motorola introduce iTunes phone
Apple, Motorola and Cingular Wireless today announced the availability of the worldâs first mobile phone with iTunes, enabling users to transfer up to 100 of their favorite songs from the iTunes jukebox on their Mac or PC to their mobile phone.
âWeâve worked closely with Motorola to deliver the worldâs best music experience on a mobile phone,â said Steve Jobs, Appleâs CEO. âWeâre also thrilled to be working with Cingular, the largest wireless carrier in the US, to bring this pioneering phone to market.â
The ROKR has a color display for viewing album art and features built-in dual-stereo speakers, as well as stereo headphones that also serve as a mobile headset with microphone.
Users can randomly autofill or manually fill the mobile phone with playlists from their favorite music, audiobooks and Podcasts from their iTunes library via a USB connection. The ROKR pauses music automatically when users take a call and offers the ability to listen to music while messaging with friends or snapping a photo.
