It has emerged that certain models of Motorola mobile phones are already syncing with iTunes – enabling those phones to be loaded with iTunes tracks.

When Apple posted the iTunes 4.9 update earlier this week the company focused on its Podcasting facilities, however, the update also included an instruction set entitled: iPod Phone Prefs.

Now it appears that certain Motorola phones are recognised by iTunes. An AppleInsider source revealed that when he connected his Motorola phone to his PowerBook iTunes 4.9 automatically launched and prompted him to transfer tracks to the phone.
