Could Apple be allowing 3rd Party Media Players Support in iTunes?

Boy Genius Report is getting the ball rolling today with some screen captures of iTunes 9 and its integration with the social media sites — in particular Facebook, and it’s pretty cool.  But, if you take a deeper look at the screenshots, something has gone unmentioned in the article that is probably a lot more newsworthy, if you ask me.

Take a look at this screen capture, and the area I highlighted.  Looks like a Samsung device doesn’t it?  It could be nothing, but it sure looks like a Samsung YH-J70JL just underwent a sync and is asking to be ejected.  If this is the case, then it looks like Apple is opening up iTunes 9 to the masses, and that other music download services better start to panic. Things might get messy!
