    Since we have previously heard about there possibly being a 7 inch iPhone between the size of the iPhone and iPad. I believe that apple could definitely produce a line of iPhones. Starting off with the iPhone Basic which would be more like a "dumb" phone then they would have the iPhone, then the iPhone XL which would be the 7 inch version. This might be a good move for Apple in earning more money. People that do not have the money for the full blown iPhone might settle for a "Basic" version. But when I say basic it wouldn't be your cheap run of the mill Nokia. It would have features similar to an iPod nano except there would be a phone included into it. Maybe even Wifi for syncing and who knows what else they could incorporate, thats just an idea that I had and wanted to share.

    Sounds like what they're already doing:

    iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S

    Each have different price points and different specs.

    Doing what you say would only create unnecessary fragmentation. No one would buy a 7 inch iPhone.

    Sounds like a horrible idea to me. (Off Topic) Is the down vote coming back?

    OP got it wrong. Not a 7 inch iPhone Apple may produce, but a 7.85 inch smaller iPad, and no manufacture in their right mind would build a 7 inch cell phone, so the OP was mistaken as to what Apple may release at the end of the year. Anyone want a 7 inch phone stuck to ones ear ? :eek:

    Sorry Forgot it was an iPad. I thought it wouldn't be much of a good idea, thanks for your input.

    Can't imagine trying to stick a 7 inch iPhone in my pocket.
