Motorola ROKR

Announcement number two from apple today is the long awaited iTunes phone. Developed by Motorola the phone will be called ROKR (or motoROKR). This basically looks like the current E1000 with iTunes built in rather than Motos own media player. The phone will store up to 100 songs and sync with a PC or Mac via USB2 much the same was as the iPod line up.

Apart from the iTunes software this really does look like a stock standard moto phone and unfortunately there is a good reason they aren't the market leader. I can't see the iTunes functionality being that huge a feature, virtually every phone now ships with usable mp3 playback and with a 100 song limit this can't compete with even the smallest dedicated player. The phone should be available in the US and UK by the end of the most and virtually every market in the world by the end of the year.
