Last month Motorola showed off the upcoming Motorola ROKR E2 phone to investors. This handset features support for iTunes, just like the ROKR E1, and is based on Motorola's PEBL industrial design.

It features a dedicated iTunes music key and a track-ball-like navigational pad along with a Bluetooth stereo headset and USB 2.0 connectivity.

This phone will support UMTS and it should be available in the first quarter of 2006.
"Expect a phone with a 1 megapixel camera, a 3.5 millimeter earphone jack (same as the iPod uses), and enough storage capacity to hold 1,000 songs -- all capabilities Motorola has confirmed," the report said. "The current phone's basic design will be replaced by a sleek new look, which sources close to the company say will be an elegant slider format."
More details over here.

It looks like this phone will be a lot better than the original ROKR E1 iTunes music phone. Additionally, Motorola is preparing at least two other phones (the SLVR L7 and RAZR2) with support for Apple's iTunes.
