Rumours abound again about a smaller version of the very popular iPhone. Engadget report on leaked pictures of specs for the protective covers for the anticipated iPhone – which could be launched at MacWorld next month.
I would argue that it is inevitable, whether next month or not, that Apple will release a scaled down version of the iPhone. There are two very good reasons to do this, IMHO. One, many people, especially women, complain about the size of the iPhone. Two, many people complain about the size of the iPhone. It will also likely be lower cost, and attract customers who previously would have considered the option too expensive. It also gets you a new sector of the market.
I have been mulling an iPhone purchase for some time now, but I will wait until after MacWorld next month before I decide on a purchase.
