What do you expect them to do? It's a slab with glass on one end and something else on the other like all of the other smart phones that have come out in the last 4 years
4.8'' screen? I thought it was 4''?

SIII is wider, only way to get a 4.8" screen with the correct aspect ratio

You comparing the 4S to the 5 and saying the only thing that changes was the screen size and metal backing so I compared the SII to the SIII as a larger screen with the same plastic backing.

I realize that for whatever reason liking one side means a great deal of distaste for the other but lets give it a break.

for simple domination, all they need to do is make 2 different sizes 4" and 5"

I've heard it will be 4 inches (only)

all kinds of things might be going on - the 4" model might end up being a 4GS or something, and maybe a bigger 5" behind it or at the same time... who knows. but we will soon enough.

i agree they need 2 sizes, because females just aren't going for a huge phone, and females are a HUGE (i'd bet majority) of the iphone market.

That introduces screen fragmentation though. If the screen does go from a 4:3 to a 16:9 in the 4 inch screen it's going to be interesting how the existing apps are adjusted since no apps currently need to scale to anything beyond that ratio.

if the screen aspect ratio does change, as seems likely, existing portrait apps might show with a black bar top/bottom if they don't know how to scale. but many apps might have fixed size header/footers and take the 'remaining space' for content, thus adapting for different sizes.

True but if you add a header/footer to apps on a 3.5in screen it's only going to look smaller. Although that might get people to want to upgrade faster

Same, just enabled 2 factor authorization on Google. Just curious, could somebody to the same thing to your android devices if they got into your Google account? I only have my gmail set to sync.

I'm probably going to delete my AppleID now. I rarely use my iTouch anymore anyway. The fewer companies that know my CC number the better....
