    Default Analyst: Apple Prepping New iPhone Line With Varying Screen Sizes



    Dating back to the iPhone's 2007 release, there has been both talk and strong urging on the part of some Apple fans for the Cupertino tech giant to introduce a line of so-called "iPhone nano" devices - iPhones that are mostly smaller, and possibly with screens of differing sizes within the product line.

    Fast forward three years and all we have several different iPhone models that - while differing in attributes and functionalities provided - are still largely the same product by design. This morning, however, the well known and credible Kaufman Bros. analyst, Shaw Wu, revealed that his sources at Apple's overseas parts suppliers indicate that Apple is now putting the wheels in motion on a new iPhone product line that will, in fact, offer a range of screen size options to consumers, possibly as early as next year.

    "Our sources believe these likely represent new high-end and low-end iPhone models to complement its current iPhone 4," Wu admitted. "One possibility we are picking up is a 'mini' or 'nano' iPhone with a smaller candybar form factor leveraging technology in its new mini touchscreen iPod nano."

    This revelation is getting more attention than another prognostication that came with it - the rumored forthcoming products will be available on carriers other than just AT&T. For now, it doesn't appear that there is nearly as much solid evidence to back up that second claim. But, over time, suppliers have provided analysts like Wu with very credible tips that ultimately manifested in new products like the iPad and iPhone 4.

    analysts are in the business of getting articles published and noticed. i doubt there is any truth to this at all..

    i "predict" we will have ipads in various shapes sizes and colors in the next 10 years. yawn.

    The iPhone is really, really expensive compared to the iPod Touch 4, but the functionality is nearly identical. That would be awesome if they started making an iPhone with the iP4's cheaper parts. It would be a mid-range solution those that didn't want to spend an arm or leg to use all the same apps. They could practically give it away on contract.

    As for the size of the device: I don't think they could make it any smaller and still market it as a high-end device, which is the only kinds of devices Apple makes, really.

    There's no such thing as an iPhone nano nor will there ever be one. I can't even believe that this nonsense came up again.

    I think this is what the iPhone needs, a high end and low end model, although I imagine 99% of customers would still go for the high end model regardless..

    This could work if Nike rolls out a new line of iPants with pockets to accommodate the larger iPhone.

    Retina on a 1" screen? iCroscope, for those without surgically enhanced vision.

    Why all the neigh sayers? What about the nano? Did Apple not take a great product and "shrink" it? I personally don't like the size of the new nano but some may. So if they do great for some. And if they don't... who really cares!

    Why is it that every new iPhone year this article surfaces? Same rumors just different names cited.

    I like the current size. If anything make it slimmer, little lighter and more power... Nano... Android size... Nah nano to small for a smart phone and android size is too damn big. Just mu $.02
