 I think that is EXACTLY what Apple is hoping you'd say.  However, considering they are not taking pre-orders on the 5S, this logic of Apple's makes no sense.  There was a study about the Chinese market and what the "Sweet Spot" is for pricing.  It was around $487. So naturally Apple decided their device is worth more profit than that.
My question about the case, if you watched the video...Mr. Ive took an awful lot of time and smugness to describe how wonderful this new chassis design is...how great is feels in your hand, how durable and high quality it is....blah, blah, blah.  Oh, yeah, lets hide all that with these fugly looking cases.  Not to mention they missed that the back whole partially cover the "iPhone" moniker and the testing labels.  Bad design detail.  why didn't they just hide a couple hole...

 That was exactly what I was thinking.  After the iPad updates, the iPod classic and the iPhone 4S will be the only two devices using the 30-pin connector.  To me, that one of a couple really bad decisions Apple made with this event.
 Dear Mr. Out-of-context-Quoter,way to twist his words around.I think he was referring to the $549 starting price off contract. Apple is so smug they think that a re-branded iP5 with plastic back should be this much?  For people like me, off-contract pricing is a huge deal.  Being out of the country for 5 months of the year, I need the All-in-one device that can replace my iPhone 4, iPod Classic, and potentially my iPad2 with a single device.  Apple missed the mark on all...
who said Apple would do this.  All we know is they are experimenting with screens larger than 4".  To think Apple would release a series of phones with the screen sizes you refer to is just ignorant.
OK, you'll have to read my last post to get what i'm about to say.ergonomic reasons go out the door when it's the iPod Touch.  The Touch doesn't need to be a single-handed operating device.  So to add to my last post, If they tested the size on the iPod Touch for a year just to see how it sold.  Then they could even offer LTE as an option.  Totally runaway success, IMO.
What I don't understand about Apple?  Why they haven't tested this on another device yet?  I mean, it's staring you right in the face and they don't even regard it.  The iPod Touch?  For how long have we all heard that the touch is the #1 handheld gaming device?  To me, that would be the perfect test bed for a 5"-6" screen.  I know there are issues with pixels per inch.  but at this piont, we've all seen the calculations about how to do it.  Take the Retina iPad and cut...
 That's funny, in the nearly 6 years i've been an iPhone owner, I can't think of a single time ive watched a TV show or movie.  Maybe a YouTube video but I can't remember when that was, probably sometime before Apple ditched the standard App.  However, I will say, in China, they do watch a LOT of TV and video on their phones.
 I can't say price, but I can tell you when i'm in Beijing (which is about 4-5 months of the year for the last 3 years) I have seen a pretty sharp decline in iPhones over the past year.  They aren't impressed with the iPhone 5 and are going to bigger screens very rapidly.  When I take the Subways, I see lots of older iPhones and a lot of new big-screen phones.  Mainly Samsungs (Galaxy S4 or similar, and Notes).  I also see a lot of Sony phones and Nokia Lumias.  Also...
