    Relatively well-known iPhone case manufacturer Vaja has curiously added an "iPhone Nano" listing to their website. The link simply directs you to a form asking you to sign up for information about "the upcoming release of our iPhone nano cases."

    While it may be that Vaja is simply taking advantage of the hype surrounding the iPhone Nano, the rumors have been persistent over the past few weeks. While Apple does not give case manufacturers information about unreleased products, Apple must contract out to factories to manufacture their hardware. It is believed that it is through these contracts that case design specs are often leaked ahead of time. As we've said before, case manufacturers have a huge financial incentive to have cases ready in time for new product launches.

    Meanwhile, iPhone Nano knock-offs are already been spotted circulating in Thailand and Spain.

    I suppose I have finally heard enough to believe this might be a credible rumor.

    Okay, this sounds credible. Vaja is too well known to bother with rumors or speculation.

    If the iPhone nano does come out - developers would most likely have to re-produce their games and apps to accommodate the smaller screen.

    So you'd end up with two App Stores - one for the iPhone and one for the iPhone nano.

    Knockoffs out before the product itself. What a strange world.

    Why is it so hard for people to understand?

    A higher dpi screen, means same resolution, but smaller physical dimension screen

    Hmm. I'm still slightly sceptical. Maybe this rumour would be more credible if we had some different leaked info from someone, anything apart from new cases!

    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.
    yes, i too, for the first time am starting to believe this may actually become a reality...

    i just hope apple knows what the hell they are doing... if it is just a mini-iphone i smell a flop. but you never know. apple may surprise us and make us say "oooh... that's how they did it... AWESOME!" which is what I am hoping for. (not that i care, i have my iP3G and sticking with it)

    Then I guess we'll all just use our nano fingers to type.

    I still want to call BS - but remember when the ipod nano fatties came out? The leaks by the case manufactures were dead on......
  17. Rocketman macrumors 603


    One thing I would be cautious about, is the images available now from case makers may be intentionally not to scale so cloners, without access to the original info leak, make their cases wrongly.

    I remember this same thing with the iPhone 3G, if I'm not mistaken...

    They had the exact same set-up going for them back then too, with a sign-up site for more information.

    The only reason for me to get a case for my iPhone would be to protect it against drop damage. Normal wear and tear I can live with, and nothing personalizes your iPod better than a nasty scratch. :p

    Seriously though, those cases hardly protect your devices against anything. Display protecting stickers I understand; got one on my lil powershot because I usually keep the think in my pants pocket. But the iPhone screen is the most durable part of it all. My iPhone's back looks pretty used (damn those people who want to play with your phone and let it slide over the table top to hand it back to you...), the chrome rim is all dented but the display looks like new when wiped off with a damp cloth.

    Every purse out there has a seperate little compartment just for cell phones, too. So why ugly up your pretty device and make it thicker? Resale value?

    iPhone Nano. The most rumored Apple device ever.

    We all know it's coming, but what we don't know is the specs and pricing :D

    What's the difference between "hype" and "speculation?"

    Quite a lot, actually. This isn't the first MR front page article to lose track of that distinction.

    OR it could be lower resolution, but have hardware scaling to accommodate any difference.
