The Battle Of The Music Phones
While SonyEricsson got plenty of attention for their Walkman phone announcement and Motorola was left backtracking after people thought they were introducing their iTunes phone when they really weren’t, it appears that Sendo is jumping up and down with its hand in the air screaming “look at me! look at me!” Yes, that’s right, Sendo is saying that they have an actual music playing phone that will ship in a month or so, unlike the other announcements. It’s really not that thrilling. Putting a music player into a phone isn’t that tricky. The real question is going to be how people use such phones, and if they start to encroach on the space of standalone digital music players.
