Apple mobile phone rumours intensify - Network IT Week

Apple mobile phone rumours intensify - Network IT Week

Turning the iPod into a mobile phone makes sense, but becoming a cellular operator either directly or through the MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) seems a bit of a long shot. Yes they'd own the customer end-to-end, but a major effort in a very competetive market.

If they just stick to increasing the functionality of the iPod, integrating a video player (the iPod photo already displays images) make sense and the iTunes music store is rumoured to be talking to the studios re licensing films etc. That with a mobile phone makes sense.
