Motorola has previewed an up coming mobile phone that can play music from Apple's iTunes store.

According to US version of PC Magazine, who were at the preview briefing in Las Vegas, the phone in many ways mimics the iPod.

"It syncs with a computer and the iTunes Music Store like an iPod does, and incorporates the iPod interface for navigating and playing digital music, said Ron Garriquesî a Motorola executive vice president.

"The phone is the first of many Motorola devices that will support iTunes this year, said Garriques, also president of Motorola's personal devices business.

He didn't provide product details for the phone or say when it would be available.

More details are expected to be announced at Mac World Next Week.
