Most Android phones aren't used as smartphones.

iPod nano 5th Gen 8GB Orange, iPad 3rd Gen WiFi 32GB White
MacBook Pro 15" Core i7 2.66GHz 8GB RAM 120GB Intel 320M
Mac mini Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz 8GB RAM, iPhone 5 32GB Black

The size is so useful that I'm leaving my normal tablet behind more and more and using my phone more, I even installed the tablet version of Android on it. Do you think surfing the internet is comfortable enough on a 3.5", have you ever not used the zoom feature to view a website.

 

I use reader.

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

It amazes me that people can make such statements, apparently without even thinking about the facts.

The 3 iPhone models are among the top selling phones (#1, 2, and 3 for 2011, but I think #1, 2, and 5 for the last few months). How do you reconcile that with your statement that no one will buy a 3.5" iPhone?

Now, it may be that Apple will introduce a larger phone. It may even be a positive and might even help sells. But statements like "no one will buy a small 3.5" screen" are ridiculous.

Reminds me of the famous Yoggi Berra quote where he said about a restaurant, "Nobody goes there any more, it's too crowded."

What's an iPhone 5? Why an iPhone 3GS rather than an iPhone 4?
