iPhone Nano patents emerge

Well, what have we here?  Seems ol’ Apple might have been thinking about an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny iPhone a few years back.  The patent below, via BGR, shows what Apple was thinking about before the iPhone was released.  This probably won’t ever see the light of day, but perhaps some of the work done here will find its way into the iPod Nano come September.  That’s right, we said it… we’d live to see a multi-touch Nano!  Stranger things have happened, and how else are we going to do fun stuff with that camera?
