    There's alot of discussion about this all over the web. Lets start one here.

    Who thinks this is real?

    This website is already selling iPhone Nano Cases...

    My thoughts about this are it has a slim chance of this being real. There wouldn't be an App Store.

    Pics are undoubtedly fake, but I don't doubt that the phone is in the works

    It would possibly work to have rows of 3 icons instead of 4

    How can anyone be expected to use the touch screen? Is this for little kids with tiny fingers or what? How are you going to play games? Nope, not buying this...pure rumour/speculation/fake.

    This would be a ridiculously stupid idea.

    People thought that the iPhone was a ridiculously stupid idea, and look what happened. I think that its a bad idea, but who knows. Maybe a iPhone Macro with a 4.3 or 5.1 inch screen.

    I wrote a little article about this business today. Can you imagine how badly a scaled touchscreen would hose touch-control games?

    Id buy it. I mean, a bigger screen is always win. But id rather they add more memory, or at least make it cheaper, before starting anything else with the iphone/itouch line.

    Lol, awesome. And yet, people were still doubtful:

    "Does “no” mean “not officially” or “nondisclosure obligation” or do you mean that Apple is not working on an iPhone Nano? I also Googled “No.” and found that it is the chemical compound Nitric oxide, but I really do not see how that could be incorporated into an iPhone Nano. I also discovered the “No.” can be represented by the “#” sign, but this makes the post even more confusing, but it is one of the twelve keys on an iPhone keyboard."

    I cant believe this person would be serious, but if so, he is a moron.

    Have a sense of humor, he's kidding

    But I would imagine the folks at Apple have explored the possibility of a smaller device. Of course the problem is that it can't be too short or you wouldn't be able to talk into it

    @terrett101:

    So, let me get this straight, if I were to participate in a carnival game where the goal was to get balls through a cardboard cut of Jennifer Love Hewitt's mouth and the balls were too big to fit on JLuv's mouth and therefore the game was rigged, would I be able to call in shenanigans? :confused:

    Would it make sense to have a device with a different screen? Wouldn't it mess up the way games are displayed?
