The Daily Mail claimed today that Apple is about to launch a nano-sized version of its popular iPhone, which will be available before 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.
'This will be a big one,' said an industry source. 'The iPhone 3G has been the fastest-selling phone ever in the UK, but it is too expensive to be a realistic proposition in the pay-as-you-go market.
Such stories are fabricated by presenting an analyst as an anonymous source, so his or her claims can float without attribution. The Mail is somewhat notorious for this sort of thing; for a laugh, keep an eye on its "photographs," which display more clone stamping than a Worth1000 competition.
But hey, who knows? I'd actually love an iPhone nano, especially if it went for ruthless simplicity and came with a non-data plan, as proposed.
