Motorola claims Apple delayed iTunes phone

March 16th, 2005

Motorola executives said that the company failed to show its upcoming iTunes phone at the CeBIT technology fair in Germany because of a dispute with Apple about announcing products months before they are ready for purchase.

“The first thing you´re seeing here is a merger of two different industries with different ideas of launching products,” president of Motorola´s phone division Ron Garriques told reporters. “Steve´s perspective is that you launch a product on Sunday and sell it on Monday.”

According to Garriques, Motorola is on schedule to deliver two iTunes phones this year; one coming on the market in the first half of the year and another in the second half.
