Apple rules out rumoured iPhone Nano

Mobile phone enthusiasts waiting for the much-rumoured iPhone Nano will be holding their breath indefinitely, after the company’s acting chief executive officer denied plans for such a device.

Tim Cook, who is assuming the role of CEO in the stead of Steve Jobs, appeared to rule out an iPhone Nano during a conference call to announce its first quarter results.

According to a report from Apple Insider, he told delegates that the company will not “play in the low-end voice phone business”.

He added: “That’s not who we are. That’s not why we’re here. We’ll let somebody do that, our goal is not to be the unit share leader in the phone industry. It is to build the best phone.”

Rumours over the existence of a scaled down version of the iPhone were ramped up earlier this month after DigiTimes reported that two Taiwanese companies have been lined up to be the official chip manufacturers for the device.

Prior to that, speculation initially surfaced when reports arose that a Chinese company had manufactured a case for an iPhone Nano.
