The iTunes phone may finally be coming this week, and with the rumored limitations of either 25 or 100 songs total, it won't be that surprising if the phone is a huge disappointment. However, it's not really clear if the phone would have been all that successful no matter what, as mobile phone users are still trying to get across the message to industry execs that they're really not all that interested in multi-function phones. They'd much prefer a cheap, simple phone that works. Imagine that. This doesn't mean there isn't a place for more advanced phones -- but the industry needs to stop rushing these things. Solve a few of the problems that people face now with their mobile phones, and then focus on the more advanced features. If people really believed that the phones would work, maybe they'd be a lot more interested in buying these fancier, multi-purpose devices.
