The Daily Mail is reporting Apple plans to introduce an smaller, cheaper ‘iPhone nano’ in time for Christmas 2008.
The report claims the new device will retail at up to £150 for pay-as-you-go customers and will be available exclusively from O2 in the UK. The Daily Mail cites industry sources for its claims.
“A cut down version, with the candy bar shape of iPod nano music players, would be a huge hit as a Christmas gift,” the industry insider told the Mail. The report speculates the nano phone will have a touch wheel on the back and a display on the front.
First intimation of Apple’s plan to launch an iPhone nano were revealed in April, when it emerged the company was considering the launch of an entry-level model to widen the reach of the iPhone.
