Chip orders for low-cost entry-level iPhone Nano to be made in March, device could be launched in June: report

Looks like silicon case makers XSKN and Vaja were doing more than just playing with our minds with those upcoming iPhone nano cases that they showed us.

Though practically all rumors of an iPhone nano being released by Apple just died with the recently concluded Macworld 2009 expo, it gets revived once again through a Chinese language report found in the Economic Daily News.

This latest find, published by DigiTimes, says that chip orders for Apple’s “low-cost entry-level iPhone Nano” might be made in March, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) will likely be the suppliers.

The report goes further on to say that “the launch of Apple’s iPod Nano is expected to take place in June this year at the earliest,” in which I take the word “iPod” was misspelled and should have been iPhone. That means that the Apple iPhone nano could be launched officially in June of this year, likely around the same time that the first iPhone, the original, was launched.

Since that’s still a good five or so months away, we’ll have plenty of time to speculate until then.
