AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka is reporting on a neat-sounding Napster client for the iPhone–and the fact that Napster says that high licensing costs for mobile streaming make the app a no-go, so it hasn’t even bothered to submit it to Apple for approval.
Napster for the iPhone joins a bunch of other promising iPhone apps which, for one reason or another, you can’t currently get: Google Voice (still being contemplated by Apple), Rhapsody (submitted for approval a bit over a week ago), and LaLa (still MIA, ten months after the company wowed me with a demo). Won’t it be cool when they’re all readily available? (I’m being optimistic and assuming it’s when rather than if.)
