hey rich or eric...............song limit question.

😕 since the ROKR2 has a limit of 1000 songs does it mean apple's itunes will not be installed on the phone. 😕 or is apple upping up the song limit.
I thought it was already common knowledge that the new ROKR wasn't using iTunes.

That's all wonderful and all, but...

WMA is crap to listen to. I know it's not currently where the money's at, but it'd be nice if Moto would do something revolutionary in this industry and support a format like ogg.

In addition, they have the multi-billion dollar assets --why don't they jump intot he fray with their own deal?

Actually, at this point, anybody, Napster, Real, Apple is better than Microsoft who's not established in the market of selling the music at all. All they have essentially is the resource TO be able to roll something out, and a codec that sucks due to high file size and low quality.

Yeah WMA is lame. I always have volume issues when I make cd's from WMA. It always turns out quieter than my AAC or MP3 formatted stuff. And it sounds worse too. Alot of artifacting in the high range. I was just fine without WMA licensing in mobile ph...
Except for the fact that WMA PRO is becoming a popular format for carriers launching their own music stores (along with all the DRM and tranport technologies the carriers are purchasing from MS to launch the services).

You always have to remember...

Could this mean...

Could this mean that the ROKR would be dual launched? Cingular with iTunes and VZW with Windows Media? Thats a great deal for Moto to make with Microsoft - I can see Moto running the table for music phones.
