Lol I wouldn't trust any rumours about Apple products before they come out. The Apple rumour mill is absolutely huge. There are so many Apple fanboys, that you get a lot of fake rumours from pricks that just want a slice of fame.

For example, in the last few days there has been so called iPod Nano 4th gen pictures circulating around, but anybody with a brain can tell that they are pictures of a 2nd gen Nano that have been stretched using photoshop (or they are really good Chinese copies of the 2nd gen Nano).

The iPhone Nano rumour has been around for quite some time and there has been no announcement of it. The thing is that people think of the iPhone as an iPod with a phone, just because it has the "i" monicker. But the iPhone is not an iPod, it is a separate product in the Apple range. So to assume that Apple will release an iPhone with a name (Nano) which is connected to its iPod range is a bit silly. It just comes about because too many people don't know what the iPhone is and does.

There is a chance of a cheaper iPhone, yes, and there is an Apple announcement that is expected shortly. This announcement is expected to contain new iPods, but it may contain other things too. I just kind of doubt a cheaper iPhone.

It's Apple, so telling if you are right is easy.
Keep posting ideas, and the one that the lawyers make you delete is the right one

Hehe I guess I don't have a brain. Sorry fellas, that was a bad call on my part. It looked so fake though. Especially cause some pictures had the old connectors even. Hehe. Whoops.

TBH, i thought the exact same thing. it DOES look ilka a cheap china-knock off.

Only thing i would consider now is the new touch with 64Gb.

Until then i'll keep my old 8Gb gen3 Nano and 32Gb gen1 Touch.

I think it looks better in the official pictures than it did in the spy shots, but yeah still, I think it looks a bit of a cheap knock-off. The design seems to be a step backward from the 'fat' 3rd gen Nano, but I guess I am kind of warming to it as I do with most Apple products. *sigh*

I don't like Apple design usually, but the 3G iphone is not bad.

I'm actually considering getting one to use mostly as a portable image and video display device and internet tablet, not actually for the phone component.

I love the navigation, though it's also worth waiting to see what wm interfaces arise to truly challenge the iphone UI.

I also reckon a 5-way directional controller is a pretty serious requirement on a phone, so I'm gonna be looking close at xperia, touch flo and other new WM UI enhancements. It may end up unnecessary to go iphone to get a cool end user experience.


I haven't heard anything about a cheaper more basic iphone derivitive, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do. Whether it will be called Nano I have no idea.

@max_wedge: It may be worth getting an iPod Touch so you don't have to pay so much on a locked in contract, or for an expensive unlocked version. It will do everything you just said you wanted it for, plus it has just had a nice redesign.

"Mr Jobs said the new Nano also had a "shake to shuffle" mode, which sends the gadget to shuffle mode with the flick of a wrist allowing you to go backwards and forwards on your playlist"

Hmmm...where have I seen that before?
