    "...it's smaller as well, so before we get into it, this is the monumental challenge the team had, can you make a phone that has everything the iPhone 4s has, before even talk about new features in a design that is thinner, lighter, and smaller than the previous product. It is really easy to make a new product that is bigger, everyone does that, that's not the challenge, the challenge is to make it better, AND smaller". - Phil Schiller
    Really? As if I wasn't disappointed enough. How small are these iPhone's going to get Apple?

    Apple tries so hard to generously shift away from the crowd but who really wants a smaller phone screen? C'mon, someone who uses a smartphone who really craves multimedia really want's a smaller phone? No. Please answer this question for me using dedicated self examples. I'm starting to think iPhone's are aiming for children and the elderly.

    While were on the same page. during the keynote they released the new iPod Nano 7th Gen. Here's a picture:

    Now here's a picture of Nokia's Lumia 900 released in January:

    He was talking about the hardware itself. The screen got bigger.

    He could have been, but he said "everyone makes it bigger". He's obviously pointing at Samsung.

    I don't like the new Nano design as much as I like the current one, but I don't think it looks like a Lumia.

    Except it's a rectangle. But so is everything else.

    No I think the black nano resembles the Lumia. It's funny how Apple decides to sue Samsung over a copied design when they obviously took the design factor from Nokia. Very sad indeed

    I agree Nokia copied apple for sure. The first time I seen the lumina I thought 2nd (and 6th) gen iPod nano.

    Neither one copied the other.

    They only look similar from certain angles.

    The Apple devices are flat across the front with an embedded flat screen.

    The Nokia devices have sculpted fronts and screen edges.

    I think there's never been a more appropriate moment to use the following expression:

    (concerning the 2nd topic raised in the OP)

    I wouldn't stretch it that far though, that version doesn't quite bear any significant resemblance to any of the designs brought up.

    Once you yank the click wheel it's essentially the same Pillow-shaped unibody tube design with rounded edges, a flattened top & bottom, and a curved screen embedded. Only real difference is one company used anodised aluminium casing whilst the other opted for polycarbonate plastic. But the 6th generation Nano has the strongest case to make in terms of like for like.

    This.

    But not so much when you consider the relative sizes of the two. The Lumia is twice as big as the Nano. But if you want to eliminate size, lots of rectangular things look the same. Here's Dave reaching for his Lumina 2001. Wow, almost indistinguishable from the Nano!

    Ok, I'm with you then I guess. 5th gen + 6th gen Nano is actually pretty much a Lumia 900 straight up :D

    It was that detail of the rounded corner black glass bezel inside the sharp metal corner outer casing that really made me go "Hmmm, where have I seen that before........" when I first saw the Lumias though :)

    ROFL! I can see the commercial... "Oh my god, it's full of songs!!"

    I'm not sure if any of you realize this is just a weird way to view things.

    I suppose if it had a screen the size of an iPad but was only as thick as a credit card it would still count as smaller by volume.
