Future iPod Functionality?
This CNet article discusses the new contact functionality now available on Apple's iPod.
With this added functionality, people are predictably speculating about adding further functionality... but Apple's director of hardware product marketing speaks again:
But Apple doesn't see iPod morphing into a Palm-like device. The new software, developed by Apple, is there mostly as a convenience.
"We see it primarily as a music player," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's senior director of hardware product marketing. Joswiak said the company has no plans to add a calendar function, for instance. "It is still 100 percent a music player, but people say, 'I take my iPod everywhere,' and they want their contacts with them," he added.
