iPhone Nano Just a Rumor According to NYT
Rumors of a new iPhone nano have been popping up all over the place, but an article in the New York Times is casting some doubt on the possibility.
According to the article, an anonymous personwith ties to the company has said that "the company would not make a smaller iPhone at this time, in part because a smaller device would not necessarily be much cheaper to manufacture and because it would be more difficult to operate."
In addition, the article goes on to speak with an Apple executive – also anonymous - who said "it wouldn't make sense for the company to make multiple iPhone models, noting that Apple would stick with its practice of dropping the price of older models when it introduced a new one."
Reports on the iPhone Nano from the Wall Street Journal stated that the new iPhone would be significantly lighter and thinner than the regular iPhone and would feature an edge to edge screen.
But, according to the New York Times, Apple will not be creating a nano version of the iPhone. Instead the company will be focusing on their MobileMe service, which would enable users to store music, photos and files online and accessible through all their devices.
The Times also noted that "the new version of MobileMe is expected to be free and would allow users to synch their files without using a cable."
