Folder or not it wouldn't a Touch device. The nano is to small for that. Instead they could leverage the click wheel. So it wouldn't be an iPhone at all.
The thing is it doesnt have to be an iPhone to be useful. As long as you can sync your phone book you will have a nice compact cell phone / mp3 player. Not everyone needs or wants a iPhone in their pocket everyday.
The question is does Apple want to play in the somewhat smart phone market. That is a cell phone with a modest feature set beyound run of the mill. I think there is potential there with the same user that buys the Nano now.
Thanks dave you have a clear way of stating simple fact sthat i seem to muddle up .
>having all what the fantastic nano has now
adding the new face to face video 3g calls
and thats about it
>>>>>>>>MY 4AM NYC DREAM IS
Making the A4 CHIP NANO a double sideD phone with the fat nano form factor with scroll click wheel on one side >>>>
and a full SCREEN FACTIME VID PHONE ON THE OTHER WITH 3G/4/7G ..
No camera for still shots just video. .
well what ever would fit I am addressing the 900 million phone buyer market CUT out so far by high buy in cost and high data costs s .
SO APPLE could then sell 160 million phones in a 18 MONTH product run
$10-20 a month in data charges
apple is the gate keeper
$250 to $300 total cost for device
free calls of course .
buyer signs up for 5 yr plans that become legacy to the vid phone for life .
