IPhone News a No-show During Keynote

For a product that seems to dominate most everything Apple does these days, the iPhone was curiously absent from Tuesday's Macworld Expo keynote by Apple senior vice president of worldwide product marketing Phil Schiller--at least until the end.

In unveiling new information about the iTunes Store--variable pricing for music tracks that will now be entirely free of digital-rights management restrictions--Schiller also dropped some intel about the iTunes Wi-Fi Store. Namely, that it's not the Wi-Fi Store anymore: you can now buy and download music tracks across a 3G network as well.

Peter Cohen has more details in his report on the iTunes Store changes announced by Apple Tuesday.

Schiller also mentioned a US$1 Keynote Remote app that will let you use your iPhone (or iPod touch) to control Keynote presentations. The App Store addition was announced as part of the iWork '09 update.
