iTunes Gives New iPod Phone Clues

Apple enthusiasts picking apart the newest version of iTunes have uncovered several references seemingly pointing to an imminent release of an iTunes phone from Motorola. Various phrases such as "Eject Mobile Phone", "PhonePodcasts", and "Setup Your Mobile Phone" were found within the code of the application.

It has been rumored that the iTunes phone may be released as early as this week, although neither Motorola nor Apple have made any indication that such a launch is scheduled. However, iTunes 4.9 appears to be making some necessary changes to support the phone, which has led some enthusiasts to believe that the wait may be over.

"iTunes will automatically fill your mobile phone with a random selection of songs from your library. You may fill your mobile phone with a different selection of songs by pressing Autofill in the mobile phone playlist," reads a message within the software.

Also located in the iTunes 4.9 release is a new icon that resembles a mobile phone.

Although it is not known which U.S. wireless carrier would end up offering the iTunes phone, in recent days it has been rumored that Cingular was selected. T-Mobile had been mentioned as a possible carrier as well.
