When I started this thread, the Gizmag article wasn't the first I saw.
When they say "mini" they don't just mean size where they could gain some savings in production costs, I think they mean also in capability.
Visualize the new eiPhone for "economical" iPhone with smaller screen than the new 4" screen, MAYBE LIKE THE OLD 3.5" SCREEN, and some reduced internals.
Personally, I expect to see a good camera in it so it can "sort of" replace the dedicated point and shoot cameras, GPS for driving instructions, etc.
Really all they have to do is reintroduce the 3.5" or even a 3.2" iPhone and call it the new Mini. They could do like they did with the iPad mini and have less screen resolution, or they could try AMOLED.
Anyway, the point would be to have a cheaper iPhone with whatever excuse they needed to compete with the Android phones AND not make their regular iPhone buyers feel over charged.
