According the Forbes magazine, Apple and Motorola could soon show the mobile phone they are developing to play music purchased from Apple's iTunes online music store.
As announced earlier this year - both companies signed a partnership to support Apple iTunes music files on dedicated Motorola mobile phones.

"We've said we have something coming on this in the first half of 2005 and we're definitely on schedule for that. Hopefully you'll be able to see more about it soon," says Eddy Cue, vice president in charge of applications at Apple.
If the phone is as far along as Cue suggests, then Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs would be likely to announce it during his annual keynote speech at MacWorld Expo, scheduled for Jan. 11, 2005 in San Francisco.

Basically it's nothing special - "all they have to do" is supporting Apple's DRM protected AAC music files with Motorola's media player used with their mobile phones. Anyway, it's an interesting combination that manufactures team--up with online music shops to compete carriers who are doing/planning the same stuff without partnering with dedicated music stores but prefer to build and maintain their own systems.
