Next Gen iPods to Feature WiFi-Free iTunes Access?
According to a tip I’ve received from a trusted source, Apple is laying the groundwork to introduce connected wireless access to iTunes Music Store across continental United States. Similar in nature to the service offered by Amazon’s Kindle book reader, iTMS access would be offered utilizing AT&T’s traditional data networks in order to provide a WiFi-free way to search, sample, and purchase available content. Apple will offer fast and high speed delivery of iTunes content and will pick up the wireless connectivity costs as well. The new service may also be interpreted as the precursor to offering a subscription based iTunes content model.
