Apple and Softbank to launch iPod mobile phones?

According to Reuters, Nikkei has just announced that Apple and Softbank are working together on developing and launching an iPod mobile phone with iTunes inside.

If this is true - bring it on! Apple has still got two clear gaps in their product range to fill and fill fast - an iPod mobile phone (could this be it?) and a home entertainment center a little more powerful than the Mac Mini with Front Row!

But I suspect we may be disappointed and instead see Softbank launch a Motorola Rokr type device that plugs into iTunes but looks nothing like an iPod with mobile phone capabilities. One day I guess Apple will deliver the real deal - just not today!
