Don't hold your breath. Apple still needs to launch this thing worldwide, and then the iPod versions.

This nano thing may be the nano widescreen iPod.

I personally don't see the appeal of an iPhone nano, since sacrificing screen size pretty much sacrifices what makes the iPhone interface so beautiful to begin with. But hey, I guess it's good for people who just want a phone that plays music, and of course, that looks great (which you know the Apple design team would make sure of).

Well, technically, the OED, which they seem to like ;) defines deny in this way:

(FW's note: MacRumors ate the embedded quote… oh well)

If they don't comment, then they seem to be denying under that definition. ;)
That definition would lead one to the conclusion that Bill Clinton saying "I decline to comment on my relationship with Miss Lewinsky" would have had the same meaning as "I did not have sex with that woman (Miss Lewinsky)". (It's hard to punctuate the latter without making it look like he was talking TO Miss Lewinsky.)

Apple did DENY the questioners an answer (refuse to give (something requested or desired) to (someone)), but they did NOT deny the veracity of the question.
