Apple to debut 3 new iPhone models this summer?

“Taiwan Economic News reported on Wednesday [that] Apple plans to diversify its iPhone product line in order to widen its reach in the mobile phone market,” Joseph Lee reports for The Financial Post.

“The new models will adopt a smaller, plastic casing… Other reports even suggest the possibility of a 5 megapixel camera, video recording and playback and an FM radio tuner,” Lee reports.

MacDailyNews Take: In some quarters, the quixotic quest for a built-in FM radio will never die.

Lee continues, “One of the three new models won’t offer 3G support… The new models will weigh between 110 and 120 grams [and] offer a 2.8-inch screen, rather than the 3.5-inch screen currently offered on the iPhone.”

  1. “One of the three new models won’t offer 3G support… The new models will weigh between 110 and 120 grams, much lighter than the 135-gram weight of the current one. It will also offer a 2.8-inch screen…”

    The iPhone Nano is coming! Maybe the low end is unlocked and the high end still locked?

  2. Now who’s interested in the “news” inventions of a taiwanese newspaper? Let alone suggesting that shrinking the iphones display size would be feasible or even what apple would do is completely moronic.

  3. re: quit reading after “FM radio tuner”

    ditto. clearly the writer doesn’t have a clue about Apple or the market. seriously
    I’m surprised they didn’t “report” that Apple will add a real QWERTY keyboard and a two button mouse to the iPhone…
