Report: iTunes phone to be unveiled at UK music festival

American Technology Research analyst Albert Lin says that the first iTunes-compatible Motorola phone will debut next month at the “V Festival” concert in the UK sponsored by Virgin Mobile. Lin says that Virgin Mobile UK will be one of the first carriers to offer the phone. The festival takes place August 20-21. The Sunday Telegraph reported this same news earlier this month.

“Observers note that rolling out a music phone at a concert featuring more than 57 bands would harmonize with Apple’s marketing style,” reports The Street. “The scuttled introductions earlier this year raised speculation that the phone companies couldn’t agree on how to slice the music download business. But Motorola’s Zander explained that Apple wanted to schedule the introduction when the music phone was available for sale.”
