Case Company “Vaja” Lists iPhone nano Section in Website

Yet another company has snuck an iPhone nano section into their website. No legit images or renders are offered, and the “iPhone nano” link simply directs you to a strange signup page.

This company goes by the name of “Vaja” and as MacRumors intelligently points out, the iPhone nano link deceptively redirects you to a sing up page on Vaja’s website. Why Vaja would need your personal information makes absolutely no sense. If you’re looking to find out information about an unreleased Apple product, signing up with Vaja is probably not the way to go.

While it may be that Vaja is simply taking advantage of the hype surrounding the iPhone Nano, the rumors have been persistent over the past few weeks. While Apple does not give case manufacturers information about unreleased products, Apple must contract out to factories to manufacture their hardware. It is believed that it is through these contracts that case design specs are often leaked ahead of time. As we’ve said before, case manufacturers have a huge financial incentive to have cases ready in time for new product launches.

Case manufactures definitely have a huge incentive to be first to market. Belkin has been known to manufacture mass amounts of cases well before Apple officially releases a product so they can be first to sell accessories. We can’t help but feel awkward about the way Vaja has set this up. Even if they do appear to be a completely harmless case manufacturer, asking for personal information is a little invasive.

Even so, the iPhone nano rumors over the past few weeks just won’t quit:

Anything with LESS features is a bad idea.

Saying an iPhone nano is not needed is one thing. Saying that something with LESS features isn’t needed is another thing. In fact, when it comes to web applications and software, less features is often the best way to go!

apple is not going to go backwards and create a non3g iphone. what’s the point. and a smaller screen screws with all the apps out there, which makes another back track. email and web surfing on the iphone is buggered enough, on a smaller screen, forget it. and without email and the web it’s a frakking Vcast music phone knockoff. don’t’ see it happening.

also, on this case thing, where are the incase, speck, etc listings. these are the big names in cases, why don’t they have things primed for this new iphone. every company I have seen is a total unknown to me and everyone I know. which might be why they are listening to total rumors

i will lay down money that next week will be an imac refresh, a mac mini refresh and if anything iphone happens it will be maybe a price drop and/or perhaps a 32 GB model.

What’s the big deal with Vaja asking for you to sign up for more info for a yet to be released product? It happens all the time. Now, if there is NO real product coming, that’s different.
