The image of that iPhone in this patent appears to have a 5 inch screen.
I'm surprised apple insider didn't post a separate article about that including new fresh speculations and release date info of such a device...
If the price is going to be $330 why bother?
They could easily sell the iPhone 4 for that price this year, and I'm sure the 4 will look far classier than some cheap plastic phone.
iPhone 4: $299
iPhone 4S: $399
iPhone 5: $549
iPhone 5S: $649
There are plenty of people that will still buy the iPhone 4, especially in parts of the world where the iPhone isn't popular because of price. The 4 is still far better than most low end smartphone.
That's interesting but according to the patent the screen on Apple's actual device is going to be continuous unlike the Philips concept.Honestly the device Apple is envisioning wont look like anything else we've seen.
