There are a lot of rumours that Apple will be announcing a new iPhone that will be smaller, cheaper and available later this year. Rumours like this about future Apple products are nothing new, but this time there are major news outlets that are reporting on it which give it some credibility.

There have apparently been people that were briefed on this new product and they just could not keep their mouths shut, thankfully. They claim that this new “iPhone Nano” will be about 2/3 to 1/2 the size of the current iPhone 4. It will also use the current iPhone technology instead of the next generation iPhone technology to reduce the cost. Whether this rumour is true or not is yet to be determined, but it does make sense for Apple to be making a product like this.

Although just about everyone that owns an iPhone loves it, many people do not buy it because it is not cheap. Many people prefer to spend very little money on cell phones and these people actually form the majority of mobile phone users. Therefore, this smaller and cheaper iPhone will have a larger potential market than the current iPhone. The rumour is that the new iPhone nano will cost about $200 without a contract and be free with a contract. This will make it affordable for just about everyone. By everyone, I don’t only mean those that don’t feel like forking over a lot of money on cell phones, but also those in developing countries that are not as rich as we are in the West. For this reason, this product can be huge for Apple.

I don’t know when we will know whether or not this rumour is true, but it is almost that time when Apple makes some sort of new product announcement so maybe it will be sooner rather than later.
