    This argument is useless.
    You'd take some random website's information over the company who actually sells the phone?


    You forgot about 140 carriers in about 100 countries in your list


    The iPhone is sold on pretty much every carrier in the world, I've proven that to you, with actual reputable facts and if you can't see that then you're simply stupid, no other way to say it.

    Ah no, if Steve jobs said 7" screen size was too small for the tablet experience then what experience would a 3" screen iPhone provide?

    If Apple made their iOS open source, could you imagine how much their market share would increase?

    I'd buy an iPhone mini in an instant. Who wants to walk around with a brick in their pocket? Some of the Android devices my friends have are stupidly large; makes me wonder if they're trying to compensate for some other inadequacies... ;-) I get that some people like larger screens, but where does that end - will we all end up carrying 60" plasma-screen TVs?

    I hope Apple goes ahead with this and gives users the choice.

    Nah an smaller iphone wont work. I was going to buy the verizon iphone on the 25 of so. But now that they found out it has a chip that can handle gsm and cdma. Im waiting. I live 8 months in the USA and 4 in Guatemala. I need GSM in Guatemala. So im waiting and still people remember we are talking about the 5 Iphone. I believe its going to be a crazy upgrade. Its the 5 year since iphone came out. so apple can do anything crazy to celebrate the anniversary if im correct. So im waiting, im just thankful they found that out. I would of been sad when im in Guatemala and couldnt use my Iphone.
    Still june aint that far. I can start the summer vacation with an Iphone 5!!! Oh yeah!!

    I had a question? Where can i find what is my green apple going to change to. Like now it is Green Apple. Where can i find whats going to be next. How many post to get to the next, etc.

    I know it is off topic.

    I don't want a smaller iphone. I want it to stay like it is. The size is just right. Not to big or to small. Androids your right. They way big haha When i look at one im like man i feel sorry for that person. They have to carry a phone that is the size of my psp just to make calls.

    I hope Apple are still not going on about removing the sim, its a crap idea it gives them full control, Europeans are used to swapping sims everytime they cross a border to get cheaper rates

    They won't be able to do this with Apple in control, can't see me plugging my iPhone into iTunes as I drive from Holland, through Belgium and into France

    Can't see the carriers being happy about this either

    I don't think their objective is to make a smaller iphone. The goal is to make a more affordable one. To meet the more affordable objective they go smaller.

    This is all about world domination ish! These phones would be for Metro PCS, Virgin Mobile and all the other companies. I think they would do good in the market. Of course like many of you said, they would have to remove some of the features to make the bigger version exclusive. JMO

    Nope. Smaller iPhone would further fragment the already confusing app store. Every developer would have to create new apps with different proportions.

    You have the HD, lite, free, SD. And now you want to further confuse things by adding another screen size? Angry Birds Mini lite, Angry Birds Lite, Angry birds HD, etc...

    Plus, isn't the current iphone in the $200 range already... I don't see how that's any different?

    Why is MMi just reporting blatant lies now? And why is the article missing all apostrophes? Is his button stuck or something?
