    Yup.
    Smaller iPhone.

    And also iTunes 8.0 is coming. Not sure what the new features will be, but it's coming.

    I don't see it happening. A smaller screen would lessen the experience.

    I know people that work for Apple and they were told from higher ups. So take it as it is.

    I can see a smaller iPhone I guess. I would not like it one bit because I love the size of the screen as is. I can see Apple making a thinner iPhone now to compare it with the HTC Dream. I can't wait for iTunes 8.0 and Safari 4 to be released.

    Smaller iPhone's are not replacing the current iPhone. Just so there is no confusion and to make that clear.

    So they are just making it an option of getting a regular iPhone or an iPhone "nano" right? Basically like iPod/iPod nano? I didn't think they were getting rid of the current iPhone, just adding different models.

    Yes new model.
    I should have been more clear.


    There's been talk of a terabyte iPod as well but that won't be for a long time.

    Oh man guys.

    There IS an iTablet being developed. My source isn't sure if it will be announced at this event or not. But it DOES exist.

    Oh wow. Awesome news. Would be cool if they introduce it at "Let's Rock", but I'm more interested in what they are doing for the iPhone for now.

    How long was it after the first iPods were released till we saw the other versions like nano? About 3 years? With the iPhone apple is venturing out of their comfort zone of apple fans and into the mobile world so I would say that 3 years is a min before they make another device, but probably more like 5 years.

    Default Apple should do this

    A basic Nano Phone low cost - They would sell truckloads!

    this makes no sense right now. They will continue their yearly iPhone roll-out and sell those like crazy. If they gave a choice of a smaller one it would only take away from the regular iPhones sales. New people would opt for the cheapest way to get the name. Plus I don't think there are that many more people left that are willing to switch over to At&t just for the phone.

    Even if it took away iphone sales, its sure to add in overall sales. That's the end goal.

    If apple would make a cdma (sprint) phone, i'd also be all over that..

    I hope apple never gets involved with sprint. I would never go back to messed up phone bills, crazy amounts of droped calls, and CS that has no clue with what they are talking about. I'm just happy I didn't have to pay an ETF when I left them. I loved Nextel, but the merge killed them. They just have great prices.

    With Sprint I had unlimited everything for $15 bucks a month... EVERYTHING... the service got so bad I had to ditch it. Very pathetic. I never got text messages, would call them and they would say everything was fine. Blah blah... It was that way for about 3 months and finally I had to say goodbye.

    iTablet existed before the iPhone. Jobs hasn't wanted to release it. I think that's pretty common knowledge now. No market for it back then. Has that changed?

    Terabyte iPod is beyond current 1.5" drive capacity. Heck, it's beyond 2.5", though we're promised laptop drives that size in a year or so.

    Now way that's hitting an iPod, and SSD going to a terabyte isn't likely nearterm either.

    Apple loves them thin. An iPod the size of a WD external is a non-starter

    iPhone Nano I could see, but by Xmas this year? They'd probably want to wait for a big event to announce it, then a lengthy buildup a la iPhone 2G and 3G...

    Maybe next year?

    (And unless the source is Steve Jobs or Jon Ive, nobody else has likely seen what's next )

    Of course, I doubt because I secretly crave all of the above, and nowish...
