Apples' next big thing a... cell phone?

Mac fans hope for phone, TV box

The resurgence of apple computers' prospects over the past few years has not been computers per se... but the clever integration of computer tech into a daily product such as personal music players.

Now the big buzz is about apple producing a cell phone... and the key word I keep hearing over and over is "simplicity". Industrial design making a device that everyone seems to agree is a pain to make full use of into a friendly device.

I use an apple pc which I love but don't have the vaunted iPod (I hate head phones). Any iPod users here? Anyone think its features would indicate apple could put out a great, easy to use, cell phone?

BTW... with my previous experience selling home theater equipment... the iTV box wirelessly connecting your computer to your living room does sound fantastic... if it is easy to use.
