Say hello to the Motorola E790 Apple iTunes phone

iTunes Phone

This is the moment you've been waiting for: obviously we can't tell you how we got 'em, but after months of pining away for this, we've finally scored some actual live shots of a cellphone running Apple's new iTunes Mobile software. It might just be an engineering or a production sample, and we can't guarantee whether this will actually be the first iTunes phone or not, but we do know that we're looking at a pearly white E790 and that synchronizes with iTunes 4.9 (and has the same autofill menu options as the iPod shuffle—see below). Not sure how much internal memory the phone has, but we do know that this sample shipped with a 128MB TransFlash card that sits opposite the SIM and under the battery and supposedly sounds every bit as good as a full-size iPod and has "excellent bass response".

[Big thanks to our anonymous tipster, wherever you are!]
