There is a slim chance of this happening, but with the iPad mini recently released, it got me thinking. Apple is catching a lot of flack from "hardcore" users who want a giant screen like on Android devices. At the same time, the mainstream market probably prefers something easier for one-handed use. Possible solution? Six iOS devices: - iPad -- iPad mini - iPhone (4.3"?) -- iPhone mini (3.5") - iPod touch (see iPhone) -- iPod mini (essentially the iPod nano) The more I think about it, the more it makes sense as a long-term strategy as more and more Android devices begin to make inroads. If Apple doesn't offer the selection and choice, people may abandon the ecosystem. Yes, there would be some fragmentation at first, but because the user base is so large, most apps would be quickly updated, and the "mini" iPhone would use the same resolution that's been around since 2007 anyway.
