Rumors on iPhone Nano continue to distract from MWC


Today The U.K.'s Daily Mail also confirmed rumors on iPhone Nano, which is set to be released this summer separately from the iPhone 5. Anonymous sources were cited in the publication to reveal both already known and unknown details on the new device:

  • iPhone Nano will cost $200 without a carrier subsidy or contract;
  • The device will be a third smaller than the iPhone 4;
  • No "Home" button;
  • The handset may be delayed or scrapped.

It was also explained why the new device may be popular.

"Phone users on tighter budgets have been shunning the pricey iPhones in favour of less expernsive models which have Google's popular Android software. Apple will now hope to lure away customers from the likes of Nokia".

Besides that, the publication reported that Apple has been working on new iPhone hardware and software that would allow customers to bypass the carriers and choose a network by themselves directly from the handset.

All the information revealed at the moment about iPhone Nano appeared just in time when Mobile World Congress started in Barcelona, Spain. The Wall Street Journal has already noted that though Apple doesn't participate in the event, it has stolen the spotlight again.
Michael Gartenberg, who is an analyst from Altimeter Group, also confirmed on Twitter that this appears to be a normal situation.

"The long shadow cast over Barcelona comes from the company not exhibiting there. That's now become common."

In 2009 Apple dominated the talk of the MWC because it was going to release the next-gen iPhone, and almost all its competitors were trying to create "iPhone killers".
