Non-Cingular customers will have to wait or switch
According to several reports, Apple is
on the verge of introducing its first mobile phone
to consumers. The news comes forward as Apple and Cingular Wireless signed an agreement to introduce Apple's iPhone. The iPhone will be released as a Cingular exclusive sometime in 2007. Those who were previously waiting for the phone to be available as an Apple standalone product will have to look at a Cingular contract to obtain the phone.
The iPhone will be equipped with a 2.5-inch 56K color LCD and have an integrated 3 megapixel iSight camera. The built in iSight will be able to take still pictures as well as motion video. Interestingly, Cingular Wireless was also the exclusive distributor for Motorola's ROKR mobile phone, which was the first phone with integrated iTunes.
previously reported that Apple officially confirmed the iPhone. Apple's chief financial officer
Peter Oppenheimer confirmed to reporters
that the company would indeed introduce a mobile phone to compete with offerings from Sony, Motorola and other manufacturers. The iPhone is expected to be in a gum-stick form factor. No details on what type of storage the phone will be equipped with -- hard drive or solid state flash memory -- but analysts currently predict iPod Nano-like storage capabilities. More details as they come.

I whole-heartedly agree with this sentiment. I've got about 13,600+ mp3's at the moment and Winamp has been the best for me to keep track of them for quite some time.
I've got Windows Media Center too, so I have to mirror my library in WMP 10 so I can stream the songs to my 360. The library file is 300mb+...why can't we got more software like Winamp?

mp3's on my iPod, and I dont use iTunes at all. LOL. You guys are such kids, anyone else notice the blatant ramp-up of my-status-is-more-than-yours mp3 amount? Hilarious.

I refrained from mentioning the size of my library in my first post to avoid that exact thing....oh well. It's not like I'd fill up more than a 60gb iPod at the moment anyways.
Also, in your effort to criticise the conversation, you missed the point: Nobody's saying that the iPod won't handle the music well, it's iTunes.
