iPhone mini on the way?

Got an iPhone? Lovely, aren't they? But do you ever think they're a bit... big?

Strong sales for SonyEricsson's Xperia Pro Mini, a fully-featured Android phone with a small 2.6-in screen, have got the industry's attention. Last week HP announced the Veer, a smartphone running its WebOS software in a diminutive package. And now the rumour is that Apple are going to get in on the action.

The Wall Street Journal - normally a reliable reporter of Apple gossip - are saying that Apple is preparing to unveil a smaller, cheaper version of the iPhone this summer. It would go on sale alongside the upcoming iPhone 5, probably in July.

We reckon this sounds like a sexy development, so stay tuned for more news as the year wears on...
