Motorola on iTunes
Motorola Chief Executive Ed Zander said mobile phone carriers do not oppose his company's plan to sell a phone that doubles as a music player. "There is ," Zander said. "I don't know where these rumors got started." Zander said the phone, known as Rokr, will be out in "a couple of more months," reiterating comments he made in April. Schaumburg-based Motorola said in July of 2004 that it was developing a phone that uses Apple Computer's iTunes software to play music. "When we did this deal last year, we knew exactly what carriers were interested in," he said. Zander said he had a Rokr with him but declined to show it to reporters. "I love it," he said.
