Just because Apple allowed iTunes DRM on Motorola means nothing. The Bold is a competitor to the iPhone. It would be nice though.
Nope. Its not a competitor to iPhone. They are made for completely different people. For example, I fully intend to own BOTH a Bold and an iPhone 2. Much like I own both my iPhone and my Curve. There is no way iPhone 2 will be good at half the things Bold will be good at. Just like there is no way the Bold will be good at half the things the iPhone 2 will be good at.
Just one example ... I really don't care how good the Bold renders web pages. As a web surfing device, it will be clunky using a ball to navigate a page for comfortable surfing. iPhone has a natural feel. I was able to plop on the couch and just surf for an hour or two comfortably with its large glass responsive multitouch screen. Absolutely no way it will be the same with the tiny screen and clunky navigation of a ball. iPhone 2 will not do push email and messaging like my BB will, and will not give me the comfort when typing long emails that a physical keyboard can give. There are many other examples of one better than the other.
They are not made for the same people, and neither will supplant the other.
