iPhone Lite - Yes, They Should!

"Analysts" are telling this:

I'm telling Apple should introduce an iPhone Lite and here's how I would have it done. Heh, writing's Cheap! :)

In the new iPod Nano, Apple has introduced a form factor that also suits a phone. 7.6 x 4 x 0.5cm. You can fit three of those on a Samsung Galaxy III (almost; that's 13.7 x 7 x 0.9cm).

Ingredients to add:
- GSM/EDGE telephony (no 3G necessary)
- iMessage
- Twitter (with pictures)

That's it.

Since the device is so small, one can think of using it with earphones only (the same as currently).

Having such a wide gap to the existing entry-level iPhone 4 makes a clear differentiation between the models. At the same time, this makes iPhone Lite perfect as a child's phone. Or as an entry level developing world phone (Brazil without tarnishing the Apple brand.

Apple already has this division between iPhone and iPod touch. They only lack a phone in the Nano size category. It should look *exactly* the same.
