Wall Street Journal has updated their article about Apple working on a smaller and cheaper iPhone and revamping MobileMe service with some more details.
WSJ reports that according to the person who has checked out the prototype of the smaller iPhone model, it was lighter and had edge-to-edge screen.
The person who saw the prototype of the new iPhone said the device was significantly lighter than the iPhone 4 and had an edge-to-edge screen that could be manipulated by touch, as well as a virtual keyboard and voice-based navigation.
WSJ also provides some more details of the revamped MobileMe service:
The new service would give users access to their iTunes libraries from, say an iPhone or iPad, instead of requiring that the devices be synced by cable with a computer and use space to store the actual files, the people said. The new service likely would be compatible with the iPhone 4, one of the people said.
This means that iOS device users will be able to finally access the iTunes library without syncing to the computer by cable, which is currently a major pain. We’ve heard several rumors that Apple will launch a cloud-based iTunes service. Let’s hope we finally see it this summer.
