Apple Computer Inc. on Wednesday unveiled a long-awaited iTunes cell phone, but then threw in a surprise -- the Cupertino company is retiring its best-selling iPod Mini in favor of a new ultra-slim iPod.
The new Motorola Rokr cell phone, available for $249 with a two-year service contract only through Cingular Wireless, has been publicly anticipated for months by analysts and reporters who follow Apple.
