how about results of the poll of 66k participants most of them likely current iPhone users?http://9to5mac.com/2012/03/23/imore-...r/#more-155037
Only 13% with you. So it is not "out-of-my-ass" but rather right into yours.
I hear this "phone not a tablet" argument over and over again which is not an argument really if the form factor is kept the same. I guess for you special 10-15% people who love their small screens apple could do full screen option easily turned off?Seriously what would you people really miss with wide / edge-to-edge screen?

square root of (4^2 + 2.25^2) = 4.58938994 which is in line with the previous rumor.
Without making screen width edge-to-edge the maximum for...
