    There are some hints about the new iPhone Nano, my question is "Would you buy an iPhone Nano?".
    Of course, it won't have the same features: it will be smaller and it won't have (i think) a lot of things that the current iPhone 3G has.
    I would but one :D
    :apple:

    No the full size fits nicely in my hand...anyway it seems like a bit of a step backwards?

    i think you should change the name of the thread to: If you don't have an iphone would you buy an iphone nano, because of course people who already haven an iphone wouldn't want to buy a nano. These are the people who think its a bad idea. i think there would be a lot of people who don't have iphones now who would now consider buying a nano.

    I wouldn't unless it's available in CDMA (and I'm not holding my breath!)

    Even thought it doesn't exist, in my "imaginary world", where the iphone nano actually exists I haven't bought it yet. It's too pointless, I got to use it for a week in my little world, and it just made me feel like I was using a "wanna-be" iphone. It was also too small, and decreased its functionality.
    Anybody else been to the "imaginary world"? Did you guys use the iPhone nano? What'd you think of it? :p

    No, I'll wait for a iPhone(big one not nano) revision to come out and that will be the next phone I buy.

    No chance in helicopter would I buy an iPhone nano. I LOVE my 2G full-sized, and even it's a little small for me sometimes.

    Depends.

    I know nothing about the nano yet or if it's even coming.

    Wait a week and re-thread "Are you buying a nano or keeping your current iphone?"

    or maybe something like...

    "Where the *@$% is my iPhone NANO!!!:mad:"

    I would buy an iPhone nano because i need a 2nd phone but I WILL keep my 2G iPhone.
    Also, I don't think that Apple (if the nano will be released) will release another iPhone in 2009 :confused:

    I think the largest group of buyers out there would be if an iPhone nano both had a low price point and was open to (and functional on) low cost plans that either have no data or much more usable on a PAYG plan than the current iPhone. Then, I think Apple would attract a large group of buyers who want status halo but won't pay $90-140/month for their plan inclusive of fees, taxes, and surcharges -- and particularly young adults.

    As for your comment, though, I (who do have an iPhone and can afford data) might generally have said yes, until the App Store came out. I can't see the games being usable on anything smaller, and the App Store really did change my perspective on the iPhone a second time around. Since I can't imagine it being nearly as fun on such a small phone, I am closeting my desire to be back to a smaller phone for now.

    Possibly.
    Depending on how it actually turns out and the plans.
    I'd lean towards it if it didn't have anything below this...
    - Smaller (obviously)
    - No GPS
    - Safari; to be controlled at least by Wi-Fi. I wouldn't mind. if you can't use it when on 3G.
    - At least 74 spaces for apps.
    - no app store (would be great though)
    - no iTunes store (I never use this on my iPod touch).
    - 8GB.

    If it had more than that I would be well set.0

    Smaller, no 3g, and no contract. That would do it for me. Great phone for my wife and a good second phone for me.

    ;)

    Really? That's weird, I guess I got to use it exclusively :D
    But, before my posts become spam,
    I do see how this phone could be a viable option for those who can't afford the current iPhone rates. Other than that, if you're able to afford the 3G plan I see it being as of no use what-so-ever, except for it being a secondary phone, or a way to avoid the data plan. But that's about it.
    The screen is just perfect the way it is, any smaller and I don't think I would enjoy using the interface.
