Starting next year, users of Apple Computer’s iTunes music service will be able to play songs on some Motorola cellphones. The new cellphones will ship with new Apple software, called iTunes Mobile Music.

Customers of iTunes will be able to transfer possibly a dozen to a few dozen songs from their PC or Mac to their phone over a cable or wireless connection, said Steven P. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive. [The New York Times]
