iPhone Nano in the Offing?


Written on 1:04 PM by Sarthak K

It sounds crazy, so soon after launch, but the iPhone nano could be coming out before Xmas. Kasper at Apple Insider claims:

• "The second iteration of the handset is presumed to marry iPod functionality with rudimentary cellular capabilities."
•"More resource-heavy internet browsing and email capabilities are not expected of the device."
•"Pricing of the new handset is expected to fall significantly below the $500+ asking cost of today's iPhone models, these sources say, but not so much so as to pinch sales of an upcoming revision to the iPod nano."

Reuters reports Apple filed a patent application on July 5 that seemed to suggest that the company was intending to introduce a Nano-style iPhone with a "circular touch pad control" much like the Nano.

Conjecture among professional speculators who are fueling the iPhone Nano rumors say look for this device to be under $300 and available in time for the holiday shopping season.

Not to miss an opportunity to blab, another analyst contributed to the iPhone rumor mill telling Reuters Apple will likely bring out iPods that resemble the iPhone's touch-sensitive screen later this year. The analyst, Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, explains to Reuters: "Such products would help stop iPhone eating into iPod sales."

Apple is not saying a word.
