Everyone wants a piece of iPod glory

Motorola is hopping aboard the iPhone bandwagon. During a Citigroup conference today, Motorola's Chief Financial Officer Tom Meredith told investors how much he loves the user interface of the iPhone and that the company "may introduce touch screens in the U.S."

Meredith also told the crowd that Motorola has made touch-screen controls for years now ... just uh, not in the U.S.

Way to drop the ball on that one.

In their defense, Meredith said that wireless companies here didn't want to use touch-screen designs because it was believed that customers rather have hard buttons. ...But of course those companies changed their tune when the iPhone came out.

Now with wireless companies scrambling for the next new product to trump the iPhone, we may see some drastically different designs and new ideas hitting the market. I say it's about time.
