iPhone nano rumors are getting momentum once again. Firstly Bloomberg claimed that Apple is working on a smaller and cheaper model of iPhone that is about one-third smaller than the iPhone 4. Now WSJ is reporting that according to people familiar with the matter Apple is working on a line of less-expensive iPhones.
WSJ reports that the codename of the iPhone nano is N97 and itâ€™s about half the size of the iPhone 4, but lighter. The person who saw the iPhone nanoâ€™s prototype said that the device had an edge-to-edge touch screen and voice-based navigation. Itâ€™s expected that the new iPhone nano will cost around $199 off contract.
So why Apple needs a cheaper iPhone?
Answer is simple that Apple wants to dominate the mobile market and its only possible with a less expensive device. Moreover itâ€™s also necessary to compete with the fast growing Android and the upcoming variety of Nokiaâ€™s Windows Phones.
