Evidence for 'iPhone Nano' gathers pace

Another day, another tantalising implication Apple's about to announced the iPhone Nano.

This time, it's from iPhone case maker XSKN. It doesn't have a picture of the product, but it does have a section on its website with exactly that name. It's present alongside 'iPhone 3G' and 'iPhone 1st Gen', along with sections devoted to HTC phones, BlackBerries, all the iPods and more.

XSKN's addition was spotted by MacRumors, which notes that the company did the same thing in the run-up to the iPhone 3G launch and the fourth-gen iPod Nano. Many observers were sceptical about the site's actions - then backed up with pictures - but they turned out to be accurate representations of Apple's new product designs.

Rumours of a Nano-sized iPhone go all the way back to August 2008, when an unnamed UK phone industry mole told the Daily Mail such a device was on the cards. It will sell for up to £150 for pay-as-you-go customers by O2, it was claimed.
