That is funny because US is the Last place on earth that is still using card swipes. And there are countries already have time table to end card swipes, and many are *waiting* for US to get their EMV and end card swipes once and for all. As much as i love the idea of coin, magnetic stripe has no place in our future. 
I seriously hope this is not true. Ever since its initial announcement at the end of 2012 ( Yes, 2012! ) MDM9x25 never got any traction on the market. And it has only shipped in Standalone or USB Modem.   Why? Because it is power hungry, and to use LTE-A you are required to have two Front End to work with it. Which is not going to happen in a Smartphone. Or unless Qualcomm decide to tweak and fine tune its MDM9x25.   The current Gen MDM9x35 is already shipping and...
LOLThen by your argument Apple should make a plastic 4 and 4S and stop selling those metallic 4/4S? Because they are HUGLY expensive to make? Oh, and they happen to sit below your cheap plastic 5C pricing as well. And, those BOM are BS? How do you know this? Kindly pick out those BOM slides and tell me where those BS are?
 For Apple, the cost different of making a Plastic iPhone and Metal iPhone is tiny when they already have those running. I.e They could have made the Mid Range iPhone with Metal, and the BOM would be less then 3% difference.  Making Metallic body means a lot more engineering on the Antenna front.  And the biggest problem is making it scale. You cant create them fast enough, and the machinery that are required are being locked up by Apple years in advance. Hence that is why...
 I think that is what's going to happen assuming the board leaks are correct. Edit. The measurement shown in Geekbar Board A : 61.52 x 98.66mmBroad B : 51.14 x 95.52mm
 Well you should read the bit just before what you highlighted  
 LMAO. Geekbar has been pretty accurate source in previous leaks as well. ( And there are actually a few more photos shown with size measurement ) Assuming the board leaks are correct, then the 5.5 will likely be a secret design. Hence why we haven't seen anything about it. And that the Pegatron isn't actually getting more total % iPhone orders, but likely Foxconn will be the only supplier for the 5.5" iPhone. While Pegatron gets more of the 4.7" orders. 
 Meta cases isn't expensive. The total cost of casing in the overall BOM is tiny. Plastic and Metal is more of a market segmentation rather then cost. 
But why? Would be great, So then Apple could hide those iPad numbers from the Wall Street guess work. LTE 6 is pretty much guaranteed.  Apple has 3 options.Qualcomm 20nm 9x35 modem, the most likely choice since it supports CDMA.Intel 7260, should be much cheaper then Qualcomm but does not offer CDMA.Or their in house 4G baseband Integrated into A8.  
If it is an iPad Nano, then it would have the same problem, 1 resolution in 3 difference screen size? 5.5 would be about 450PPI. Although I wouldn't mind an iPad Nano with VoLTE capability.
