Mix: Motorola/iTunes pic, iPod rivals, iTunes Sampler, XM Radio

The first picture of one of Motorola’s new iTunes-compatible mobile phones has made its way out of CES 2005 and onto the Web.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says the iPod still has no equal, despite a number of new entries coming from CES this week. However, Creative is gaining the most traction with its Zen Micro, he says.

Apple is now offering a somewhat hidden free 13-song ‘iTunes New Music Sampler’ album to new iPod owners—or to those who restore their device or click on this link.

XM Satellite Radio says it has had discussions about a combo portable audio player and XM receiver with several companies, including Apple, but there are no current partnerships and no plans for an imminent announcement.
