    Default iPhone Nano Coming Again - This Time for June - The Rumor Continues


    The iPhone Nano rumor that just wont die continues on with the latest possible evidence reported by AppleInsider. According to the Economic Daily News (in chinese) suppliers bidding for the rights to produce various components of the iPhone Nano for Apple is drawing to a close meaning that Apple has nearly decided who gets to build what for the device. Discussion/negotiations between Apple and product suppliers coming to a close soon would put production of the iPhone Nano on a good time line for a June release (if the rumored iPhone Nano exists of course).

    A June release would make perfect sense -- Apple likes to update its products in yearly cycles and holds the Worldwide Developers Conference in June where Apple has previously announced final details about the iPhone and iPhone 3g.

    While the evidence and rumors concerning this iPhone Nano continue to build (although they have been going on for a year, maybe more) I am still skeptical for a few reasons.

    Screen real-estate. Unless the iPhone Nano is going to have something very un-iPhone-like for example a slide out keyboard or something of the sort (a stylus?) a smaller screen may not work for may users. Some of us with big fingers already have some issues navigating the current phone.

    You say that there above point isn't valid and that Apple would just have less buttons / menu items on the screen. I say AppStore. The AppStore is Apple's bread and butter and imho has done leaps and bounds to further sales of the iPhone. I don't see Apple releasing anything named iPhone without the AppStore. Since many of the thousands of Apps on the AppStore are designed to specifically work on the current iPhone's resolution one of six things would need to happen to have the AppStore and the iPhone Nano.
    • Fitting the same resolution in a smaller screen. This would make everything work but be smaller and possibly unusable if it is just a touch screen device.
    • Stylus or other keyboard or something to control the phone. That isn't very iPhone-like. Those have been very standard control methods on phones for ages. Apple likes moving forward with technology not backwards.
    • Apple edits all the current apps or insists that devs make another version for the iPhone Nano. If the devs don't re-do an app for the iPhone Nano then it is not sold/downloaded by iPhoe Nano users. Pita and not a good option. The developers have already spent time energy and money developing their applications for the screen of the current iPhone. The iPhone Nano AppStore would start at ground zero with all the work that people have put into the AppStore being irrelevant.
    • No AppStore. No way.
    • There is no iPhone Nano
    • Apple has thought of something really nifty to sort the issue all out

    While I am currently a doubter of the iPhone Nano if it does exist and is coming soon and Apple does execute correctly they could probably sell it at an entry level price point of $99, sell a freaking ton of them, and haul in mega cash. They should be coming out with an entry level iPhone or iPhone Nano the question is if they are.

    I don't want one or need one. I hope this doesn't come out. Just another distraction from the devices we already have. But that's just me.

    how many people are really complaining about the iPhones form factor. IMHO, the size of my iPhone 3G is perfect. The only way the iPhone could be better size wise is if it could be the same size as my iPod Touch 2.0. That thing is REALLY thin. But the screen size is the same.

    I would disagree about the appstore comment. I think there would be a market for people who just want an ipod built into their phone. Maybe not even internet or gps or anything of that sort, just not have to carry around an ipod AND another phone. 50% of the reason I got the 3G was so that I would have ONE device. At the end of the day, the ipod and the phone/SMS features are still what I use the most on my phone (not to say I don't use everything else a ton). I think there would be a market for this, especially for those people who want to say they are "cool" by owning a product but don't necessarily want such bells and whistles. That being said, I don;t think Apple would want to keep the name if all these features were to be cut out.

    Default Apple can be crazy
    I don't know, I could definitely see people buying it, I mean people always seem to like smaller things no matter how unusable they may present themselves.

    And I remmeber seeing a patent book about a year ago where they had made pictures of a patent that apple had filed, of course these pics weren't official by any means.

    But it had an iPhone with a kind of invisible plastic cover that you could still use to touch, so it didn't impede the touch screen in any way, and then you could flip down the plastic and it was basically an extra screen where like a touch numpad could pop up or whatever-need-be. So that's probably a possibility too.

    All I'm saying is that you really can't ever quite rule apple out of anything. They may even just give developers the option to make like cheaper or trial apps for the nano that only nano users could use, and then if they did real well they'd of course "port" them to the iPhone.

    I think the idea is that people that don't care about movies on their phone would buy the nano

    Everybody keeps talking about an iPhone nano but why not an iPod nano touch? That seems like a more realistic idea. To me anyways.

    What is everyone fussing about with the so-called 'iPhone Nano'? As far as I can see it's just a name people have given to the new, smaller version of the iPhone. The iPhone is great but lacks in many areas. I strongly predict that iPhone Nano refers to a slimmer version of the iPhone with upgraded hardware (ie Camera, Wi-fi, screen resolution and GPS reciever). I could never in a million years see Apple releasing a tiny iPhone - remember how Apple like simplicity, it's ludicrous to suggest they will release a tiny phone that probably needs stylus controls - not gonna happen.

    ... i just thought about something. What if its not the Iphone they're actually talking about. What if its really a new Ipod Nano? A smaller iPod touch for people still on the go except its the new generation of ipods. Maybe they'll be getting rid of the shuffles? Just throwing some things out there.

    This is reverse engineering smartphone technology in my opinion. Especially iPhone technology. The form factor of the iPhone is great, but hey we shall see when the time comes.
