Apple won't launch cellular iPod

With the announcement of the Nokia N91, which has a 4GB HDD, 2 megapixel camera and 3G features, people started suggesting that it might be a good move for Apple to create a iPod with cellular features. But will they do this? The Inquirer believes they will absolutely not.

They write that Apple has never shown desire to enter the cellular market. For instance they haven't helped developing a mobile OS and the iPod is also in a different price class as the Nokia N91 will be.
Furthermore, the prices don't seem to add up. An iPod mini cost about £140 in the UK. The Nokia 9300 – which is comparable to an N91 costs about £250 will limited subsidies and around £400 without.
