Reuters: Apple mulling $99 multi-color and larger-screened iPhones - Page 2

post #41 of 47
I'm excited to hear about a 4.7 or 4.8" 1080p iPhone. I hope they release it this year, as I'm due for a refresh but won't buy another "mini" phone.

BTW, bigger phone means more space for a bigger battery. Assuming the display isn't on all the time, it would mean a major increase in battery life, too! 1smile.gif

An American living in China....

So why is it Americans views are narrow and uninformed....maybe its all the people in Asia that you are seeing that have a narrow and uninformed point of view.

Those phones are 40¢ worth of plastic and sold in "emerging" markets where if they fail the user is no longer able to call customer support anyway.

Lol! Is that a joke? Nokia lost money on four of its last five quarters, and nobody expects that to change.

No, no joke. Maybe you should learn how to read a financial report before posting. Nokia can, and is making phones that retail for $99 and making a profit on them
