Images of what appears to be a 3cm x 3cm touch screen bearing that Apple name have started leaking out of China, and so far the rumor mill is at a loss as to what the tiny display is for. The photos first appeared at Apple.pro along with speculation that Apple could be working on a touch-based wrist watch.
Assuming the photos are legit, and that the display really is touch-sensitive, Apple could also be working on a redesigned iPod nano or iPod shuffle with touch interfaces, or possibly a new input device for the Mac.
Apple.pro has previously gotten its hands on what turned out to be legit images of iPhone 4 and MacBook Pro parts, but that doesn’t guarantee these photos are accurate, too. Since Apple doesn’t comment on rumors or unannounced products, we’ll have to wait for more leaks — or an Apple product announcement — to see if these shots are real.
