The people on here complaining about 0.7 mm increase in thickness are ridiculous. Do you know how small one millimetre is? You won't even notice the difference.
LOL, you're talking about Apple here.

Thumb resize.

And? Just because your competition is doing something doesn't mean that it makes sense. The iPhone can used one handed with average sized hands. 4.3 screens are much harder to use one handed.

Because you have Siri you may not need to look at the screen as much making the screen size of lesser importance. I think a 4" iPhone would be ideal.

If I wanted a tablet in my pocket i'd go with an Android masquerading as a phone.

i just don't get this bigger screen thing, i was in a phone shop on Saturday and the shelf was full of droid devices all 4" plus screens, i picked one up and instantly it was to big,it just felt wrong, i don't have a pocket that they would have gone in, a 4" iPod touch may work but not the phone.

Nah, I disagree. Keep the 3.5" and keep it simple.

I would like a 4-inch screen even at the same resolution just to make some buttons bigger for thicker fingers. But I think Apple will only do a non-multiple resolution once they figure out the seamless non-fragmenting hardware scaling of screen with a pixel density so high that we can't tell they are scaling things.

Too bad you all miss the point when talking about the issues of having a 3.5" handset and a 4" handset. The sixth generation iPhone will run on iOS 6, and I think there's a good possibility that iOS 6 will get a new GUI (because let's face it, the current GUI is getting old... I mean... 2007).

That would fix a lot of problems.

0.7mm is so frickin' small that most people could never measure this difference without digital calipers = who cares.

I too am getting sick of that iphone mock-up. Just bring on the MBP redesign so I can begin coveting something .

That is a carrier, not phone. Apple could care less about that, they released the 4 on sprint the same day as the 4s.

I'm holding out for a 1920 x 1280 screen on the iP5 (2x resolution)
Maybe in a few years. Imagine a full HD screen on a phone!

What's with this constant Blu Ray request? Physical media is ancient history. Thumb drives have similar cost/GB than Blu Ray disks, can hold more data, are compatable with most every computer on the market, are rewritable, are faster, and more durable. Plus, you don't have to spend a fortune on a dick drive to record them.

Let me show you a centimetre ruler which has half-milimetre graduations. Trust me, its unnoticeable. But Jony Ive must have cried when the engineers told him that the design must be thickened. But 0.8MM for a retina display, and possibly even OLEDs are well worth it.

Adding thickness to allow the additional battery requirement of the dual LED display system and the added overhead of 4G wireless, is the minimal compromise needed to make the product tolerable to use. It would be a welcome offering to have a version of the iPad3 with a substantially increased battery capacity so it operates for a "full day".

Yeah, if he's a chubby chaser, we'll see an iPad 3 that looks like a NYC phone book.

I agree 101%. Hell, Apple will even wind up spinning the size increase as trivial, I can see the ads with the "It's only .8mm thicker which you won't notice .. what you will notice is the stunning retina display" (etc).

I'm definitely a buyer if the display gets a big bump!

They better have a great heating issue fix if they're making their already hot Macbook Pros even thinner...

I'd like to buy an Ivy Bridge if they'd get a few issues I have with it fixed. Heat, 13 inch resolution, poor graphics performance (Ivy Bridge should fix this one). Could use some more battery life. I hope they're taking the CD drive out since they're making it thinner...Put in some more battery where the drive use to be.
