  Well, its much more likely related to design and engineering.  Cheaper components could be consuming more power than newer. If they want to achieve the same battery life and functionnaly at the cheaper price, it makes sense the device will be bigger and heavier.   imo its more important to ditch form factors over functionnaly when making a lower cost phone. The interesting component will be the screen, will it be retina?  My guess is maybe, if they changed the iphone 5s...
  I never taught of that, but that could be an interesting model for TV channels too.   That being said, I would glady still buy an Apple TV set, having the cable feeds integrated into iOS is something I want. For me, the best way to make it worked would be to sell dummy monitors that are link to either an AppleTV box or could have a plug-in Apple TV core that could be updated over the years.   So multiple monitor sizes and upgraded Apple TV box to include cable feeds/OTA...
  China, India and Brazil are huge markets potential if apple could offer something there that is appealing to more than 2% of the population. Even in developped markets, EU could used a less than $400 iphone that is NOT the previous model.
  Indeed. you cant win over someone who will build its PC's in a wooden box because he absolutly dont care about form factor. weight, looks or fan noise. All they want is specs and when you do that yes you can beat Apple prices.
  Depends. The high end iphone is using a lot of cutting edge components that are very expensive. By toning down everything but keeping the device compatible with the lastest apps and iOS versions, you can cut the cost a lot.   I do think the low cost iphone could sell well even if its price include a little premium over other low cost phone.  That little premium is all margins and will make the diffence between no profit and decent margins.   They must do something for...
  Maybe you are thinking of the US market only?  In a lot of countries, an iphone is months of salaries. The low cost iphone is primaly for emerging markets, not to mention the design should fit there needs better.   Another aspect of it is the ecosystem.  Below a certain point Apple will become a niche market, exactly like they did in the 80's with the PC market. Once there is pretty much game over. Seriously if Apple makes the same mistake twice, they should run out of...
  i hope not because ipad apps dont fit into a TV screen to fill it up.  imo its annoying.
I remember those guys from last year. They showed legitimate iphone 5 components ahead of the launch. With the amount of leaks we have on iphones parts and accessories they got to be manufacturing them right now. Maybe the low cost phone will launch this summer ahead of the high end iphone 5s 
I am more and more convince the Apple TV App store will support all the iphones apps right from the start. There will still be room for specialize apps after launch. but introducing the TV with hundreds of tousands of apps will be a major thing.  The current iphone 5 resolution is 1136 × 640 pixels, at 16:9 which is already almost 720p resolution.     The innovation will be the way you control them. The "remote" has to be multitouch to support current apps. If they...
  I dont think so.  If Apple is to introduce a new size later on, its not dumb enough to show us a bigger side game control right now that would hint at the new size immediatly. The important thing they did is to introduce what the controls will be and to introduce the dev API for them.   Even if Apple is to introduce multiple iphones and ipod touch models, they wont spread in tons of sizes either, maybe we will get 3 sizes tops. Not a problem for the game...
