It would seem that the on-going story of the Motorola iTunes phone is far from over. After having stated a few weeks back that the long awaited gadget would finally make its debut in the UK at the V music festival as part of a launch on Virgin Mobile, the mobile network has now spoken out to dismiss the claims.
Virgin Mobile has stated that the phone will not be launched at V, that it has not yet scheduled a launch date for the phone, and has even gone as far as to say the phone may never actually appear on its network.
So we are back to square one. We do not know when the thing will launch, which network it will appear on, or even what country it will appear in.
Meanwhile, we wait and see what Apple’s own iPod plans are. Having finally rationalised the line of full-size iPods, it can only be a matter of weeks, if not days, before they announce that the 4GB iPod Mini is history, along with the 512MB Shuffle, and maybe even the 1GB Shuffle, to be replaced with a 2GB Shuffle with a 1 or 2 line display.
