Abbyrd, a popular Beatles fan site is reporting that the Fab Four and Apple, Inc. have reached a deal to sell some of their music on the iTunes store.

Exactly how much of the catalog will be sold on iTunes is unknown, but "unnamed sources" suggested that it may begin with The Beatles new album "Love."

Macworld UK reports:

The rumour began last year, when Beatles drummer Ringo Starr hinted that tracks from the band — the last major act to refuse to release music online — would be made available "at some point".

Then during a November web conference, EMI's former vice chairman David Munns again told the audience that music from the Fab Four would be made available online "soon".

Speclaution grew even more intense on 9 January 2007 when, during his keynote address at Macworld Expo, Steve Jobs played 'Lovely Rita' during the iPhone announcement. Jobs also featured the album covers of Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in his legendary iPhone demo.

Did he steal the music from P2P networks? Rip them from his personal CD collection? Or was the iPhone demo at MWSF a prelude of The Beatles announcement to come?

Could a Special Edition iPod also be in the works? Maybe Apple will announce a really slick 6G iPod like the iPhone, minus the phone?
