I guess eventually it will go the other way around as well. I was
very surprised not to see Steve Jobs announce an iPod Nano-Phone.
A iPod Nano with bare-bone GSM functionality as provided by one
of the recent single-chip developments from TI and SiLabs AeroFon.
Would fit nicely and cover 85% of all use cases, that is voice and
SMS. True mass-market. Pop in your SIM and you're ready to rock.
A slightly enhanced click-wheel would make a nice input device too
(and no, do not emulate a rotary phone). All together would cost
only $15 more than the base iPod. GSM single chip is really cheap.
Yeah, I'm a dreamer.
