    If this phone offers seamless bluetooth integration (unlike my moto V600) and is in roughly the same form factor of the Moto Razr - SIGN ME UP!!

    Most interesting. An iPhone that has 256 or 512 of storage would be very cool. I can get well over 3 hours of music on the 256MB SD card I use in my Palm. That'd be enough for people who want to go for a ride or a jog, but don't want to have to carry both a phone and a music player with them.
    January 11th could be more illuminating that I previously thought.

    I am really curious who the service provider would be. Certainly not verizon, probably not sprint, gsm services would be more likely given the number of countries that use gsm, but which ones?

    I guess the rumors were true... if it's good I'd buy one. We'll know Jan. 10th...

    I really hope that its Nextel - Since they use ALL Moto Phones and now that Nextel has purchased Sprint! :D

    I hope that all companies can carry it. Sprint/Nextel, Verizon, Cingular. I personally have Verizon, and if it has blue tooth, I'm worried. Because Verizon always seems to disable it or just doesn't offer the phone.

    Some interesting quotes:
    and

    So, it looks like Apple wants to seriously limit the capacity, to save costs and to not let it compete with the existing ipods. I wouldn't expect more than 64MBs of memory (good for about a dozen songs at 128kbps) and no removable media.

    Since I already own an ipod mini, I don't see much use for this. I'd be more interested if Apple brought a version of its iTMS to the phone, so that I can buy content (audio) on the go. At least this means that Motorola will be making phones that are more compatible with iSync.

    I also suspect that Apple will be getting into the ringtone download business as well.

    i hope all carriers have it as well, but it would most likely be limited in its functionality if Verizon carries it. I love Verizon's coverage, but other than that...

    Anyway, I'm sure Cingular will have it. Didn't the CEO of Cingular make a speech at a Macworld keynote a year or two ago?

    Hmm... is it possible there won't be a flash iPod but there will be an "iPhone"? :confused:

    Sounds great, but verizon is dumb and prob won't won't this phone on their survice. I'm mad that verizon doesn't want their moto phone w/ bluetooth to sync with a pc/mac, if it did, i would def buy it. If verizon did have this phone, i would prob buy it. after all its an apple and mot, to great companies!
