    I was just contacted by a market research company to participate in a focus group for a new cellular phone. As these qualification interviews go, they asked me the usual questions about my age, income, etc. but there were a few questions that make me wonder if this might not be for an iPhone. Here's the questions that I remember:

    Do you use a laptop?
    What operating system do you use?
    Do you have an mp3 player?
    What brand is it?
    Have you ever purchased music off the internet?
    What service did you use?

    I managed to qualify, but the focus group isn't until Sep 20, so will have to wait and see what it is. But the question about which operating system I use on my laptop made me wonder if this might not be Apple.

    Of course it could just be a post release follow up to Chocolate, or any other phone company trying to jump on the band wagon.

    But until the 20th at least i can hope it's the new iPhone.

    While it is interesting, I wouldn't get my hopes up. Almost any cell phone on the market will sync with a computer, and most of them now double as mp3 players - that would explain the OS and mp3 player questions.

    ...but the music service questions do make me wonder.
