Taiwanese website Apple.pro reports that Apple is experimenting with three different prototypes. One of the prototypes contains a slide-out keyboard for easier typing. While contradictory to the iPhone’s image, a slide-out keyboard will be better in the long run, as typing is still a challenge for even the most grizzled iPhone veterans.
Another prototype is essentially an iPhone 4GS. This prototype will upgrade the camera to eight megapixels, as well as the battery, according to Apple.pro. The third prototype is not described by Apple.pro, but is likely the iPhone Nano prototype that was reported over the weekend.
This is not Apple.pro’s first rodeo for breaking major Apple rumors. It was the first to break the redesigned MacBook in 2008 as well as the new iPod Nano featuring a touch screen, so they do deserve some merit.
The Apple rumors of the past couple of days seem to fit together. The iPhone Nano supplements the other two iPhone 5 prototypes to form the three prototypes Apple.pro mentioned, while all iPhones could look to increase the screen size by removing the home button. Stay tuned to this column for all the latest iPhone 5 rumors as soon as they break.
