What Is A "Nano-Based" iPod?

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

There have been some talks about a "nano-based" iPod — which I totally don't understand. What do "nano-based" mean?

In fact, the current iPhone is "nano-based", if we are talking about the storage technology inside the pod. The words that reporters are searching for, I think, is "smaller-sized". Of course, that doesn't sound as sexy.

But, of course, the iPhone is really nothing like an iPod. Steve Jobs has even said that he is treating the iPhone business as a separate business from the iPod business. To assume the iPhone product line will mirror the iPod product line is possibly a very wrong assumption to make.
