    With the ability to make applications that communicate through the 30 Pin connector in 3.0. Would this be possible.....

    Say your listening to music on the radio and your about to go running and you have your iPod and your iPhone.. You like the song so much you want to listen to it while your working out, but you don't want to lug your iPhone around. So you just simply go to iTunes on your iPhone download the lovely song then connect your iPod to your iPhone via a cable and simply transfer the song over...

    I know I would use that feature alot!

    Is it possible...

    would you use it!

    No as both devices would be acting as USB slaves: you need a master (a Mac or PC).

    But technically Apple could make the iPod recognize its plugged into the iPhone and make the iPhone aware whats plugged into it and make it work.. or heck forget the cable couldn't they just use bluetooth?

    Why wouldn't you just upload it to you ipod from your computer? It seems that whenever you have both your ipod and iphone around you will probably have your computer around too.

    Seems a little unnecessary, i probably wouldn't buy it but im sure there is a market out there for it.

    I think you are one of the very few people who want this. Apple are unlikely to expend the engineering effort to make you and the 5-10 other people who want this happy...

    iPhone doesnt sync as a usb slave
    its an active part of the sync process
    unlike iPods which are slaves
    the iPhone COULD TECHNICALLY do this
    wether it will be allowed is a different story
