Apple patents iPhone nano design

Touch-sensitive surface on the rear

A new patent has emerged that suggests Apple has been thinking about an iPhone nano.

The diagrams show a iPod nano sized handset with a screen on the front and a touch-sensitive surface on the back.

Apple often patents ideas that never make it to market. However, the fact that such patents exist may well indicate an iPhone nano is imminent.

MacNN has the patent illustrations.
