Apple not interested in launching iPhone Nano
And so it came to pass, that the iPhone Nano will never see the light of day. Our hopes of schoolchildren titting about with shiny touchscreen, easily-scratched handsets in the yard at break times are dashed.
Apple is ploughing through the mobile market like a fierce cow through custard, but they're just not interested in getting involved in cheap handsets. According to Electricpig, acting Apple CEO Tim Cook crushed the wet dreams of many a fanboy during a recent conference call, saying:
“You know us, we’re not going to play in the low-end voice phone business, 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.”
Curse you, Cook [shakes fist in a skyward fashion]. Apple is all about new gadgets to dick about with, so you better have the MacBook tablet ready to launch by Autumn, or Jobs won't be the only one needing medical attention.
