Report: Apple to launch ‘iPhone nano’ in time for Christmas

“Apple is about to launch a ‘nano’ version of the hugely successful iPhone. It is expected to be in the shops in time for Christmas,” Simon Fluendy reports for The Daily Mail.

“The product will be launched in the UK at up to £150 for pay-as-you-go customers by O2, the mobile phone group owned by Spain’s Telefonica. ‘This will be a big one,’ said an industry source,” Fluendy reports.

  1. IKON … badly, if at all. But, let’s look back at how well the iPod “Classic” interface worked (works?) on the nano. It doesn’t! So … the nano is a failure, right? I don’t think so, but I could be wrong. When things shrink, you generally lose features. The smaller phone will either lose some of the features of its bigger brothers or find a way to “grow” back up to a barely usable size. There really ARE people out there who can make do – nicely, in fact – with fewer of the “smart” features that make the iPhone such an object of techno-lust.

  2. The Daily Mail???? Since when has that frightful rag ever been a trustworthy source?

    For those that don’t know, the DM was the only paper to support Mosley’s Blackshirts and Hitler during the 1930s.

  3. Consider this:

    Product: iPod nano
    Last Release: September 05, 2007
    Days Since Update: 334 (Average = 268)

    And . . .

    Product: iPod touch
    Last Release: February 05, 2008
    Days Since Update: 181 (Average = 153)


    It’s time. Too bad the Mac mini has gone a lot longer [days since update: 363 (Average = 188)].

  4. Absolute bull. Aside from the fact that this “source” has zero proof and is simply making things up, this makes no sense. What are the killer features of the iPhone? Internet browsing, multi-touch, the app store. Reducing the screen size harms all of those features.

    Not going to happen.
