    Many good points! I think that making a smaller iPhone would actually work out, probably not near as well as the iPhone 4, but well enough to warrant trying it in a much smaller production amount. Over the years Ive heard many people say things to the affect of not liking the iPhone based on its size. Also, look at the latest iPod nano; It has a drastically watered down OS and very limited functionality, but is smaller and overall, handles very much like the other current iOS devices. My money says it will be about the same size as the more recent 120gig ipod, weigh a little less and will probably lose some of the major features that they push with the iPhone 4(Front facing camera for facetime, noise canceling secondary mic, and probably "Retina" display).

    sounds about right, would be all its good for, i mean you would not want to do some of the things you could do on the normal iphone because of the lack of screen real-estate.
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    Default I hope not
    I really hope Apple doesn't go through with this. I've prided Apple on not releasing dozens of phones each year to compete. They stay at the top of the market but just putting a phone out each year and they can keep doing that. So please Apple, no new, smaller iPhone.

    now i can see this not working. how much smaller can an iphone really get....and be hard to use...especially a touch keyboard.
    I wish they would make it bigger. Bigger screen, bigger battery, and my big fingers would be happier.

    Default Seems to be a Good decision
    I believe that Apples decision of coming up with the mini Iphone at more economical cost is a Good decision to increase its Market share. If the Iphone is with all the same features as the existing Iphone 4 does have then it will definitely a success.

    Lol idk why but the Little Ceasars Pizza [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQJLAt3eFgc"]"Pizza By the Foot"[/ame] commercial popped into my head when I read that.

    I doubt it I'm guessing theyre making a free lance iPhone which I think is quite smart because everyone would buy one. all apple would have to do is produce one phone unlike android who produces multiple phones for multiple services. i wonder if they make money for being on a selected service and get a percentage of the bills for having an iPhone on the service

    OMG, the current phone is already small enough, still want to make it smaller? Holy crap...Apple must be on crack.

  20. #99
    It seems counterintuitive to assume they would for some odd reason be looking to reduce the screens size to make the phone smaller. It's much more likely they are attempting to reduce the areas that surround the screen.
