Rumours that Apple will soon launch a scaled-down version of the iPhone 3G have resurfaced. Thought to be called the iPhone Nano - not that that's a hard name to guess - the information comes from report by website iDeal China, which has claimed it was sent images of a silicone case for the unannounced talker by a third party. …
Thought how much money they'd make if they sold this one on the cheap without a contract?
Though I suppose the thought of the iPhone being as ubiquitous as the RAZR was at it's prime makes Steve want to retch.
Those cases look pretty ugly. Who in their right mind would put THAT on their iPhone?
As for an iPhone Nano, i'm not really too bothered. If it's cheaper than the regular sized model then I can see more people buying them.
Mines the one with the iPod Touch in the pocket.
Yeah and you'll be needing nano-scale fingertips if, as it looks in the pic, the thing is just a smaller scaled down screen as the keyboard will by teeeeny... it's already fiddly enough on the full sized phone!
Absolutely no comment, except...
The more you call them "talkers", and the more that winds people up, the more I laugh. Just a sadist, I suppose.
Help please- spare us this time
Havent we had enough of Hype & hoopla about Iphone on el-reg??
Can you please, please, please not dwell on this new gadget (this includes fanbois, appletards and jesus haters as well).
Even paris would be fedup by now !
... no thanks. Even smaller screen and *less* functionality!
Now if they announce a 32Gb iPhone, I may be tempted by the Dark Side...
add www to the link for a working URL, like so:
IPhone shuffle randomly dials up to 1000 numbers randomly.
Wider AND Thicker?
...and no 3G to boot? Where do I sign up!?! Apple, you've done it again!
Everyone, pass the Kool-Aid!!!
What about an iPhone shuffle?
Stores all your numbers, no display at all, only needs the simple controls like an iPod shuffle, it phones a random person from your phonebook every time you pick up.
Why? I mean you can pick up a 32GB memory card for a phone for waaaaaaaay less. In fact you can pick up an unlocked HTC Polaris and a 32GB microSD card for substantially less than the iPhone on its own...
And how exactly will you type on it??
I love my iPhone and wouldn't be without it now but seriously, it takes a bit of practice to get used to using the virtual keyboard, if they shrink it down any more its going to be impossible to use. Plus one of the main selling points is the lovely big screen for videos, photos, games etc, seems kinda pointless to make it smaller.
