Source: NanoPhone by the Start of ’09

     I’ve been talking to a few people in the know regarding the introduction of lower end iPhone models and it sounds like Apple is working on multiple iPhone projects, however technical issues have mainly hindered an early release of new lower-end handsets. The NanoPhone, for instance, was repeatedly described by my sources as an unbelievably small and thin model which has suffered from adequate battery life. Feature-wise, I’m told the NanoPhone will lose the camera and forego some of the advanced features in the upcoming iPhone second generation model like 3G capability and GPS in exchange for a user interface which was described as more innovative than the current generation. I was told that the ideal scenario for Apple would have been to separate the launch of the 2 models by several months, first introducing the 3G iPhone in June and then the NanoPhone just before the holiday season ’08. While that may still play out, the more likely scenario will be the introduction of the NanoPhone at the start of ’09 at the Macworld gathering. I’ll have more on the NanoPhone development later.
