A recent report from the Wall Street Journal says Apple is developing a new set of iPhone, which is called iPhone Nano to out stand the heavier competition in the smartphone market. The new device may be of half the size of current iPhone 4.
The person who saw the prototype of the new iPhone said the device was significantly lighter than the iPhone 4 and had an edge-to-edge screen that could be manipulated by touch, as well as a virtual keyboard and voice-based navigation. The person said Apple, based in Cupertino, Calif., also plans to upgrade the iPhone 4.
The new device is coded as N97 which would be available to networks around at half of the iPhone 4 prices. Meanwhile there is another talk on the revamping of MobileMe which allows users store data in the centralized locations and allows to synchronize their contacts, calendars between computers and other devices. This is all for an annual subscription fee of $99 and Apple is just planning to make this service as free.
The company plans MobileMe as a locker which works on the cloud computing where users can store photos, music and videos. Implementing this will eliminate the higher amount of device memory as well. As smaller iPhone’s come with less memory storage Apple’s MobileMe revamping may be the steps to welcome the new kids.
