iTunes phone holdup

4/20/2005 08:17:00 AM, posted by anand

Here is an article at arstechnica that discusses why is there a holdup for the iTunes phone coming out of Motorola. I had written about it earlier here.

Its boils down to the basic fact that neither of the parties (Motorola, Apple or the Carriers) wants to give up their agendas. They all want to make money, but want to do it in their own ways. Its clear that the consumer doesnt want to carry two devices, a cellphone and a music player. But a phone manufacturer's customers are carriers not end-user consumers. They sell phones to carriers and not to the end-users. So they gotta figure out a way to make the carrier happy first and foremost.
