Apple and Moto announce partnership on cellphone

There's been a lot of mumblings about Motorola and Apple working on a cellphone together, and even an iTunes capable phone Moto was already supposed to roll out. Today, however, the bomb dropped: Apple officially announced some kind of cellphone partnership which would result not just in a Motorola phone that is iTunes capable, but in something users could call a proper "accessory" to their iPod, chiefly one that Apple should have a large part in the interface and exterior design of. The phone should be expected to have fully-enabled Bluetooth (spitting right in Verizon's eye) and run "mid-range" (i.e. estimated $200-350 US), which we certainly didn't see coming. As usual, we only know what little bit has leaked from Apple themselves, so we'll keep you up to the minute with the usual rumors and conjecture as we get it. Until MacWorld, anyway.
