The 'iPhone nano' rumors are back

The 'iPhone nano' rumors are back. Well, apparently it's the 'iPhone mini' now: "Rumor: Apple considering return to 4-inch form factor in 2015 with 'iPhone 6s mini'" - by Neil Hughes, AppleInsider

The rumors of a smaller iPhone started the day after the original iPhone was announced, as Harry McCracken pointed out in his excellent 2012 piece on the mythical iPhone nano (rumors really heated up in 2008-2009). It's hard to remember, but many thought that the original iPhone was too big. Some even accused Apple of using a big-handed model to make the iPhone look smaller.

So I find it funny that the rumors of a smaller iPhone are back, and that this 'iPhone mini' might actually be the size of ... the original iPhone.
