Jobs' stand-in quashes iPhone Nano rumours
Do we believe him?
Apple’s stand-in CEO, Tim Cook, has effectively denied rumours that the firm’s secretly working on an iPhone Nano.
Cook didn’t use the words “iPhone” and “Nano”, but given that the iPhone Nano is thought to be a stripped-down version of the iPhone 3G, it’s a pretty safe bet that his reference to “low-end voice phone” was a coded response to iPhone Nano predictions.
Apple’s top dog – who’s standing in for poorly Steve Jobs – added that the company’s goal is to build the best phone and “not to be the unit share leader”.
Earlier this month, it was reported that two chip companies - TSMC and UMC – had supposedly been chosen to supply chips for the iPhone Nano. Separately, cases said to be designed to fit the pint-sized iPhone have appeared on a variety of Chinese websites. ®
