Apple plans to launch iPhone Nano at Christmas

At this moment, this is reportedly a rumor. But rumor can always develop into reality. Apple likes hyped stories to keep them in them spotlight. The Daily Mail reports that “Apple is about to launch a nano version of the iPhone. It is expected to be in the shops in time for Christmas.” 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 (how about the U.S ?). The nano iPhone is rumored to have a touch wheel on the back and display on the front so that numbers would be dialled from behind.

Now try imagining iPhone nano. It would be a smaller version of the new iPhone with the touch wheels of the iPod. I can imagine. Apple just released the iPhone 3G and now thinking of releasing iPhone nano. Apple, please give us a break. I haven’t gotten any iPhone yet and you want to release the third variation of iPhone.
