The article reveals the possible launch by Cupertino, California-based Apple of a lower-cost iPhone in 2009, according Friedman Billings Ramsey & Co. analyst Craig Berger. He said some call the device the iPhone Nano, and they believe it is on its way. Apple has chosen Qualcomm to replace Infineon Technologies to supply its baseband chip, a processor that some experts have blamed for problems with the phone's 3G connectivity. Berger also said that Apple is also expected to release new iPod Shuffles and cheaper Macbook notebooks.
