Apple "Production is set to begin next month for the screens, which measure at least 4 inches diagonally compared with 3.5 inches on the iPhone 4S, the latest phone from Apple, the people said." Cue the usual suspects twisting and turning to change the very fabric of space-time so that instead of 3.5" being the optimal size, 4.0" will be the optimal size. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I like a phone that can fit in my pocket. I have relatively deep pockets, but even so, it seems as though this move to larger screens is going to present a few issues in that department. It will, of course, depend on exactly how big said screens are (at least four inches is not exactly a precise measurement) but I think we're losing sight of the fact that phones should fit easily in pockets. Maybe the women are okay with carrying big purses, but I'm an old-fashioned fellow who prefers his pockets and to have my phone in easy reach. If the screen's too big, I'll be going for a 4S and I suspect there will be a lot of people doing the same. Note that I can't say how big "too big" will be until I can actually get my greedy fingers on it.
