iPhone 6, iPhone nano rumors trickling out

iPhone 6, iPhone nano details trickling out

Remember this morning when I mentioned that The Wall Street Journal iPhone 5 rumors lacked the usual wink-wink, nudge-nudge controlled leak flare? I asked for miracles, and the WSJ gives us Yukari Iwatani Kane. Writing alongside Lorraine Luk, Kane, who's track record is excellent, adds:

A person briefed on Apple's product plans said the company initially planned to launch its next iPhone this summer as it usually does, but the device wasn't ready in time.

This apparently due to production and yield challenges still faced by Hon Hai/Foxxcon, which could result in iPhone 6 delays as well. And speaking of this next, next generation handset:

People briefed on Apple's plans said the company is planning a major iPhone revamp then, with one person saying the company has been experimenting with features such as a new way of charging the phone.

Let's not forget the iPhone nano, which TiPb previously heard might be near completion and simply waiting on a launch date:

Apple has also been working on a less-expensive phone with new features such as an edge-to-edge screen, according to this person.

Should make for an interesting fall event...

iPhone 6, iPhone nano rumors trickling out


iPhone 6? Too soon to imagined...
iPhone nano? I choose iPhone 4 as the less-expensive iPhone rather than this nano (if it's true) when iPhone 5 released.

I never understand why you guys post these bullshit articles about stuff that no one is focused on now. The iPhone 5 isn't even available, let alone been discussed of yet. And a iPhone nano is just ridiculous and won't ever happen.
