Mix: iTunes charts, Inventec, T-Mobile, Napster

Apple’s new iTunes Worldwide Charts let you quickly see the top selling songs and albums from the 20 different iTunes Music Stores across the globe.

Taiwanese iPod part supplier Inventec Appliances Corp. reported its revenue more than doubled in the first half of this year to NT$47.9 billion (US$1.47 billion).

T-Mobile may offer an iTunes-compatible phone from Motorola. The company hinted at such plans in a slide during a German press conference yesterday.

BusinessWeek looks at Napster’s brand in the uphill battle against Apple. “The online music service has iTunes in its sights, but the latter may have developed a huge lead that’s tough to overcome.”

I would take the T-Mobile report with a shaker of salt. I’ve found that they plan to carry a lot of phones, but don’t actually follow up and actually stock them. I’m still waiting for T-Mo to stock the Treo 650 that their reps keep telling me they’re going to sell. More than likely they this report is intended for the European market only.

This is really only T-Mobile Germany, but I truly hope the take it in the U.S. too,
Please, T-Mobile? Give us some good phones, and not 6 months after the competition.
