Even though Apple has not yet officially unveiled its affordable version of iPhone, some case makers have already demonstrated a protecting enclosure for what they claim to be Apple iPhone nano, whereas some creators of fake gadgets have started to sell handsets that may are claimed to mimic the yet unreleased iPhone nano.

According to photos reportedly made by a reader of AppleInsider web-site in Thailand, devices – which are about the size of Motorola V3 RAZR – that should resemble Apple iPhone nano are already available at local dealers. The media claims that such devices “are almost always designed to mimic Apple’s products as closely as possible” and are usually sold under Apple’s brand-name, therefore, being complete fakes.

Considering the fact that Apple has no product called Apple iPhone nano, it is unlikely that the devices sold in Thailand actually mimic the product. At this point it seems that certain dealers want to satisfy demand towards smaller iPhone by selling non-existent Apple-branded device.

Earlier this year a source, which is claimed to be familiar with the matter told media that Apple iPhone nano was set to be available in shops in time for Christmas for £150 ($291) without a need to sign a contract. Experts expected the alleged iPhone nano to become a popular gift for Christmas.

Since iPhones are rather popular, their more affordable derivatives would become best-sellers among teenagers and others who cannot afford the original fully-fledged models, which would greatly help Apple to boost its market share.

Apple did not comment on the news-story.
