iPhone Nano rumors continue to swirl
The Wall Street Journal article, published Monday, cites the paper's usual unnamed "people familiar with the matter" as saying that the new model will be about half the size of the current iPhone. Bloomberg's unnamed sources said the phone will be even smaller, about one-third the size of the current handset, and will have no home button. The iPhone 4 is 4.5 inches tall, 2.31 inches wide and .37 inches thick.
Both sources reportedly saw a prototype of the new phone last year and said it will be about half the price of the current model.
With stories from two major news outlets with a solid history of reporting leaks from the notoriously tight-lipped company, it seems all but certain that a smaller iPhone is in the works. It's worth noting, however, that Apple doesn't bring every concept from its labs to the marketplace.
The report from the Wall Street Journal also indicates that Apple's MobileMe service will be free as a personal "locker" for photos, videos and maybe music.
Apple has yet to comment on either story.
