Apple CEO Jobs Sees Deal For Beatles Music Within 6 Months

Just an update.  There was no Beatle/iTunes related announcement made today.

For a complete recap of the iTunes announcements and events check here.  The touch-screen iPod looks like a truly wonderful thing.  It looks like Beatle fans may have to wait a little longer for it to finally happen.  The rumor game is so fun to play though…we’ll keep you posted.

Steve Jobs, did say that he hopes it will all be sealed soon.  It looks like we are still six months off from a Beatle announcement.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Chief Executive
Steve Jobs said Wednesday that a deal to make Beatles music available on the iTunes online music service is possible within six months.

“It is up to Apple Corps; we are working closely with them,” Jobs said in a CNBC interview. “I certainly hope in the next six months, but we will see.”

Jobs added that the iPhone will launch in Europe next quarter, and would probably be available in Asia in 2008.

Earlier Wednesday, Apple announced that it is cutting the price of its iPhone, trimming the price of the 8-gigabyte model to $399 from $599.

The company also launched iPod Touch, which shares the same touch-screen technology that was the trademark of the iPhone. The device also features the ability to connect to Wi-Fi Internet hotspots and a full Internet browser. The gadget will sell for $299 for the 8 gigabyte version, and $399 for a 16-gigabyte version.
