Say hello to the HiPhone Nano

The possibility of an iPhone nano is much anticipated, but as yet unconfirmed. That, however, hasn’t stopped Chinese manufacturers bringing out their own version, the chirpily titled HiPhone nano.


Like their earlier iPhone clones, the new HiPhone nano borrows pretty unashamedly from the Apple playbook. The front of the clamshell handset has an iPod style clickwheel and display screen for music playback, whilst inside there is a touchscreen with stylus and handwriting recognition. The device also features dual SIM card support, a micro SD card slot, and a 1.3MP camera that also records video. Unfortunately the whole thing looks like a cross between an old, mangled iPod and a Star Trek communicator, and we’ve got an idea that if Apple really do bring out their own, it might be a little bit different from this. To put it mildly.

So whilst we doubt that the appearance of this young pretender will cause any ripples over at Apple HQ, we can only hope that one day soon we’ll be able to get our hands on an iPhone nano as it should be done. Fingers crossed…
