“A Motorola spokesperson noted to MobileTracker in an email early Wednesday morning that while iTunes was shown off with the E1060, this was a special case meant just for the demonstration. ‘E1060 was used to demonstate iTunes client; however, it is not our iTunes product.’ Rich Brome, who is on site at the 3GSM conference in Cannes, also confirmed in an email early Wednesday that iTunes is not on the E1060,” MobileTracker reports.
“In an Apple-like fashion, Motorola is keeping the first iTunes enabled phone under very close wraps. While Motorola wanted to show off the software, it appears the company wanted to keep the device secret. CTIA Wireless 2005 has been pointed to several times as a likely announcement date for the first iTunes phone. The conference takes place this year March 14-16th in New Orleans, LA,” MobileTracker reports.
