If Apple were planning to release a larger 4.8" phone there is plenty of time to work out the design and address any yield issues. Other companies have managed to make large dispalts with super high PPI and there is no reason to think Apple and their partners would be stumped by a problem others have already solved. Knowing Apple you can also bet that if this phone is for real they have been working on it for a good long while.
Rumors in February rarely amount to a hill of beans. By mid to late summer the veracity of the rumors will be far more believable since that will be closer to the actual release date and might be accompanied by actual photos and other supporting proof. Apple is aware that there is a huge pent up demand for a larger screened iPhone despite good sales figures of the iPhone 5.
For me, this is a non story.
If Samesung can product the S3, Apple could p*ss a bigger screen.
All the blah, blah this and that re: iPad Mini? And it came. Apple style.
If Apple want to do a bigger iPhone. They will. They did already. The iPhone 5.
I liked the 3.5 iPhone. Gave it to my Mum. I kind of miss it. Great design.
iPhone 5? Surreal thin and weight. Blisteringly fast.
it's a jewel, the S3 is a chav piece of bloated, fat and derivative design. What were they before the iPhone? *shrugs. And they run the crap Android. They don't even make their own OS. The screen is over saturated and the white is dull. The interface 'bitty' and clunky. 'Back to the 80s wit teh 'brick' in yer hand.
If there is a 'big' iPhone to be done? Apple will do it....take longer but do it right.
As soon as they unveil their 'ipod' device for every 'market' strategy to iPhone, it's all over for Android.
I think they could have rolled this strategy out sooner.
But we need more choice from the iPhone brand. For different consumers. One size doesn't fit all. Give it time. I think it will come.
