Ha, good eye Al. Yes, the patent specifically states that "An example is shown in FIG. 1A, which illustrates a mobile telephone 1000 comprising a keypad 1020 and a display."

Keep in mind Al that the design of a nano phone in this patent wasn't the focus of the patent. But it does show that Apple's engineering team was at one point toying with a nano phone concept. Any nano phone would be touch-centric as their "official" iPhone nano patent proves out.

Blah-blah-blah - in the end you did catch a flaw in the design, virtual buttons or not. Ha! Good one.

I hope that this wasn't an iPhone Nano, since it doesn't have buttons for all 10 digits...
