Apple Goes Moto? Don't believe the hype

Motorola and Apple have agreed to bring the iTunes jukebox and music service to mainstream Motorola phones. Interesting deal by Apple invading the mobile music player space that RealNetworks has called its own. Will this service work on Microsoft powered Motorola phones or is this deal just a pile of hot moto like the Motorola Palm phone agreement and Symbian involvement? Also, how will this fit with Motorola's close relationships with carriers? iTMS is a direct competitor with carrier mobile portals and music download services a la 3's walled garden offering, Orange World, O2 Active and Vodafone Live. Expect nothing to happen after the operators pimp slap Moto into submission and send them back to turn tricks in the PAYG part of the phone showroom.
