I can't front, regardless of whatever technology festishes I have, when it comes to my phone I keep it simpler than a Soulja Boy song. I can't risk the functionality of my blackberry's rock solid push email system for all the bells and whistles that come on new phones. Now if the iPhone actually had a keypad with buttons, I'd probably think twice.

Regardless, Scratchworx.com is reporting today that two new beatmaking programs are set to drop for the Iphone, so maybe I'm going to give purchasing that device some second thought.

So there's Beatphone and the MPC500 Project, both of which allow you to make tracks by tapping out patterns on the screen's virtual pads. Plus you can sample and edit sequences. Perhaps you'll even be able to make a phone call at the same time.

Check out some screenshots.
