The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Wireless industry itching to muscle in on the music

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Wireless industry itching to muscle in on the music: "The Apple iPod is a small, simple-to-use white box that can store and play back thousands of songs.
But that's it; that's all it can do, says the wireless industry, which is betting it can build a strong contender by adding those features to a cellphone that already places calls, takes pictures and links to the Internet.
The wireless industry focused on music services and hardware yesterday, the first day of the annual Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association wireless conference in New Orleans. Judging by vendors and others at the conference, streaming music to the phone is one technology that may reach a wide array of consumers by the end of the year. "
