iPod Nano discontinued in India

After Apple reduced the price of iPod Nano to $129 in the US a few days ago, we all were expecting the iPod Nano to become cheaper in India but unfortunately Apple has stopped selling iPod Nano in India. The reasons for the same only Apple knows.

This means that the built in accelerometer iPod Nano will not come to India.

Bad news for iPod fans in India.

iPhone Nano

Apple Apple Apple!!!Apple’s news and rumors never just seem to end.The iPad 2 rumors were not even over and the iPad 3 rumors already started.Now the new trend in Apple rumors is the iPhone Nano.

Earlier people said that the iPhone Nano rumors are fake and Apple will never make such an iPhone ever but the recent comments from Tim Cook(in an interview with Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi) said that Apple products and not for rich people only which means that they will cater to the mass market as well.These comments may well be referring to the iPhone which has the highest starting price($599 whereas the iPod is $229 and iPad is $499).

Now coming to the point what we think will form iPhone Nano.

1.The iPhone Nano i believe will not be nano in shape or size. It would have a similar interface i.e. 3.5 inches because if Apple are to launch a new size of iPhone all the apps will have to made again if they have to work perfectly. Firstain believes that the new iPhone Nano(if launched) would have a usual iPhone 3.5 inch screen.

2.Apple might also use the same statergy as Android i.e. creating cheaper devices with lower tech specs. i.e the iPhone Nano would be similar to the iPhone 3G or maybeb 2G i.e. it would have a lower camera,cheaper screen,a little cheaper material for body,lower processor.

3.It would use a lower version of iOS i.e Apple might create a new version of iOS which would be compatible with the new low specs iPhone Nano or maybe use iOS 3

4. It would cost a little more than the iTouch i.e. it would cost around $350. It would replace the iTouch upto a great extent.

The reason why people will buy the iPhone Nano though it will be have lowers specs is because the UI and simplicity that the iPhone provides is rare to find in any other mobile device.

4. It will be something similar to the Chrome OS notebook when you talk about cloud technology. It will have a small memory and the apps would create a cache files by which it can run even when you are not connected to the internet.The other media(movies,songs,pictures) would all be in the traditional cloud based system. Mobile Me subscriptions would increase immensely.

When you compare the iPhone (first version 2G) with the latest devices from Nokia and below 15k android devices you would yet find the iPhone better. This is why the iPhone Nano will yet be the winner.

iPod Nano hacked; to get games, videos, calendars, more apps (video)

This is incredible! Apple’s 6th generation iPod Nano has now been ‘hacked’ by a developer named James Whelton, who was able to break through the Nano’s “cache comparison” system to further enhance the gadget’s usability.

James has proved his hack (see video below) by completely removing the apps off the device! But it doesn’t end here. The iPod Nano could soon be able to support games, videos, calendars among other apps. The difficulty here, of course, is the tiny screen of the Nano!

James claimed that he found files pertaining to games, apps, videos, and calendars within the Nano’s file system, leading to the conclusion that the Nano’s OS is definitely a hybrid between the old iPod Nano OS and the iOS.

James said that more information on the “jailbreak” will be out soon, so stay tuned. (Make sure you subscribe to our feeds to make sure you don’t miss out on any latest news: RSS Feed, E-mail)
