Yes. However...

iTunes 7.3 is listed as a requirement for the iPhone but has not yet been released by Apple. Reportedly, the new version of iTunes will allow you to convert any song that is available on iTunes into a ringtone with the "Make into Ringtone" feature. The cost for this service is $.99, however. It's not clear based on information available whether or not CD-ripped songs can also be easily converted or this is specifically an iTunes Store feature.

When a song is selected for conversion, a "garageband like" interface comes up to allow you to pic the 30 second clip you want.

Forum member FreeState noticed that Apple's Question/Answer list now shows an image of iTunes with 8 tabs (vs 6 in the video)
Looks like Apple still has a few surprises in store for Friday.

doesn't make sense to buy a song for 99 cents then pay the say amount to convert it into a ring tone....I they did this type of deal wouldn't it make sense to charge say 49 cents since you already did pay for the song?

And now we see the reason why we can't use our own sound files for ringtones. I HATE iTunes.

every major electronics device has been subject to hacks. who ever thought people would bother hacking a vacuum (roomba hacks). anyway, there are people out there that will be paid to hack this thing. that will be objective #1-- for both good and bad hackers!
