The latest round of iPhone rumours reads like a roundup of everything we’ve heard before. Now the mythical iPhone nano is back, and supposedly said device will be coming to Verizon in 2010 featuring a new hybrid cellular radio.
Keep in mind this is all coming from an industry analyst report supplied to Apple Insider, and as with all analyst reports, take it with a huge chunk of rock salt.
Rumour has it that the new iPhone will have a hybrid UMTS/CDMA radio inside, so it’ll work on nearly all major carriers. The report also cites that the device will have a 2.8-inch screen, downsized from the current 3.5-inch display.
That’s nothing we haven’t heard before, but the one thing that might make this report more believable than others is the titbit about who’ll make the thing. According to the document, Pegatron will build the phone and not Hon Hai, the current manufacturer.
Baseless speculation, or looming product launch? Whatever the case, I’m much less excited about these rumours now that Android handsets are available on Verizon. As great as an iPhone would be on Big Red, there are very solid alternatives that you can pick up today, so why wait? [Apple Insider]
