MacRumors recently received an anonymously submitted concept image of what many are calling the “iPhone Nano.” We can see from this image that the “iPhone Nano” is essentially just a smaller version of the current (black) iPhone 3G.
Surprisingly enough, the leaked image displays the iPhone Nano as having an 8GB capacity, much like its current iPhone 3G counterpart. This leads me to believe that this image is just another photoshop job, I mean it’s at least 1/4 smaller than the current iPhone!
MacRumors has its doubts too,
“…we [MacRumors] have some serious doubts about the likelihood of such a device. These doubts are based both in the quality of the sources as well as the practicality of introducing a new form factor to the iPhone/iPod Touch platform.”
It has been my experience dealing with such “leaked” images that they, more often than not, turn out to be photoshopped hoaxes. Just remember, this image has yet to be confirmed by any official sources whatsoever, so until then, the iPhone Nano is just a rumor!
