Wireless iPod Would Make Sense: Qualcomm CEO (Reuters)



Personal Tech Pipeline

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Qualcomm Inc. Chief Executive Paul Jacobs said on Monday he believes it makes sense for Apple Computer Inc. to develop a wireless version of its popular iPod music player as cellphones are beginning to compete with portable music players.

"It makes sense to me that they would see the phone as potential competition ... To me having the wide area (wireless) connection is really a cool thing," Jacobs said in New York at the Reuters Global Technology, Media and Telecoms Summit.

But Jacobs noted that while he talks to Apple "every so often" he does not have any insight into the company's product development plans, which are often shrouded in secrecy until the products' actual launch dates.

Analysts have also said they expect Apple, the leader in the portable music player market, to add wireless links to its iPod. Cellphone providers in the United States and other parts of the world already offer wireless digital music download services.
