Apple not working on smaller iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2011

Remember the latest rumor about Apple working on a smaller iPhone? Well, according to the New York Times, that ain’t happening, though Apple has looked at the possibility of a cheaper model. Earlier rumors had Apple developing a prototype of a smaller and cheaper iPhone, 1/3 smaller, or 1/2 as small depending who you believe, but the Times is now claiming that “Apple is not currently developing a smaller iPhone, according to people briefed on Apple’s plans who requested anonymity because the plans are confidential.”

Anyway, a smaller device would not necessarily be much cheaper to make and it would be a pain to use besides. Developers might have to rewrite their apps too. So no smaller iPhone just yet.

If you are looking to wear your Apple Nano on your wrist then the new iTorq wristband might be just the thing. It’s a different take on the watch strap designs currently available. The iTorq is basically a brushed aluminum bracelet that you can attach your Nano to.

It’s a simple and clean design. According to the designers at 4iConcepts, attaching the Nano to the iTorq takes just a few seconds, and it can then be easily removed when you don’t want it.

A project started by Scott Wilson over on Kickstarter has made the money it needs to go from concept to the real world. The projects are the Tiktok and LunaTik watch kits for the new iPod nano. Scott needed $15,000 to fund the project and ended up with over $75,000. I guess people really want them.

And why not? They are the coolest watchbands for the nano we’ve seen yet. The TikTok is a snap in band that the iPod can be removed from easily. While the LunaTik is made from aluminum parts and comes in silver or red colors.

You know the drill. An Apple event is imminent and lo and behold some cases turn up online. Yep, we’ve been here before. These come from Chinese case retailer X-Doria. There’s a case for what appears to be a 4th-gen iPod touch with a camera, and one that’s described as a case for a “nano 6G,” which could be for a new iPod shuffle with touchscreen.

The iPod touch case looks like it has a curved back similar to the current model, while the nano / shuffle case looks like it will hold that 1.7-inch Apple touchscreen that was rumored last month.

Well, apparently this one is finally available. You can get the NanoTV 3G for about $29.50. We still think it would have been cool to slip your iPod into the VHS slot, but that’s just us.

Cassette Nano Case is awesomeThese 45 Nano Cases are made from actual cassette tapes and will fit 4th gen iPod nanos. It doesn’t get much cooler than this. I would buy an iPod Nano just so I can put it in this case. You get 24 color options to choose from.

cect m188 puts an iphone nano in your hands

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2009

cect m188 puts an iphone nano in your handsThe rumors of Apple releasing an iPhone Nano are still going strong, but they remain just rumors. You can own a miniature iPhone right now if you don’t mind that it’s a cheap Chinese knock-off. The CECT m188 clones the look and menus of the original iPhone in a package that’s just 86mm x 48mm x 11mm. Or about the size of a credit card.

The screen measures 2.6″ diagonal, and it’s touch-sensitive, so it sucks to have large fingers with this one. Using a stylus is probably best. The phone is completely unlocked and works on 900/1800/1900Mhz GSM networks around the world.

Coby’s MP600: A $20 Nano competitorCoby’s MP600 Video MP3 Player takes some obvious inspiration from the iPod Nano. It features a 1.44″ LCD screen that will play back all of your MTV video files, JPG photos, read text files as well as MP3 and WMA files. You’ll also get FM radio.

The best part is that they didn’t clone the price, which is just over $20 for the 2GB version. The 4GB version will cost you $29.99. So if you’re looking for a cheap alternative for the Nano, you might want to check it out.

Three new iPhones rumored for 2009

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2009

New iPhone in June?According to an analyst with the Canadian research firm Canaccord Adams, three new iPhones will appear in 2009. According to a report on Seeking Alpha, analyst Peter Misek identifies the most lavish of the trio as a 32GB iPhone 3G that will be available in a variety of colors. Then there’s a lower-cost handset based on the 2.5G iPhone, which is targeted for China and India. Third is a smaller version of the phone, about one-third the size of the 3G iPhone that will cost 40% less and we should see that one by year’s end.

The rumor seems to be gaining traction, and it fits with some of what we’ve been hearing, but we are taking it with the usual grain of salt until we hear more.
