I don’t imagine that many people who make crap up based on crap rumors have CNC machines.
Larger phones for larger hands; and for those who prefer a larger display (which the Android marketplace clearly demonstrates). There are many in the marketplace who would not buy an iPhone because it is too small. I am one of them. I own a Galaxy Note 1; and I love the screen size. It strikes the right balance for portability and a second display when docked on my desk next to my laptop.
If Apple does produce a Galaxy Note sized iPhone with Touch ID, I would snatch it up in a heartbeat. I also believe that many others would switch from Android to Apple if Apple produced such a phone. I also believe that many existing iPhone owners would also buy a larger screened G Note sized iPhone if they could.
I would love it if Apple would synthesize the iPhone 5S and the iPad mini LTE Retina. That would be my ideal communications device which would allow me to get all my communication from the internet, cell phones, and iOS; with the luxury of the iPad mini - with which I could use it as a second line with a Bluetooth headset.
