Motorola Blames Apple For Lack Of ITunes Phone

The number 2 phone maker in the world, Motorola, was scheduled to reveal an iTunes-capable phone during the CeBit conference, which took place last week.

Unfortunately, the phone never made an appearance, leaving many who follow the industry confused. However, Motorola representatives provided an explanation for the phone's absence: While Motorola will sometimes display soon-to-be-released devices, Apple CEO Steve Jobs does not like to reveal products until they are ready for consumption. Because of this difference in philosophy, Motorola did not reveal the upcoming iTunes phone.

According to Reuters,

Ron Garriques, president of Motorola's mobile phone division, said Motorola is on schedule to deliver two phones that can play music downloaded from the iTunes service this year, with one coming on the market in the first half of the year and another in the second half.

He also downplayed a question about whether the reason Motorola did not unveil the phones at CeBit was because of a disagreement with mobile phone carriers.

"I've got lots of carriers fighting to be the first one we go with," Garriques said in an interview.

Garriques did not reveal any further details about the pending iTunes/Motorola phone.
