    With the release of Apple's iPhone phablet, Apple should lead the market in offering a model that swings the pendulum. For the iPhone 7, offer three sizes: the phablet, the mid-size, and introduce a super-slim, very compact iPhone for those of us who use it primarily as a phone and email device.

    If Nokia can do it, surely Apple can. Who wouldn't like an ultra-compact iPhone in this form factor, one you can easily carry in a shirt or front pocket?

    Just the formfactor, not the keys.

    Isn't that what iWatch 2 or 3 or 4 will become eventually when it is able to make phone calls etc on its own?

    If Apple Watch can do those things, I'll buy one. But I don't think it will happen for many years, if not a decade or more. Battery, radio, and antenna technology isn't there yet.

    We'll have that next year and it's called Apple Watch.

    As it is, hitting the right letters on the keyboard maybe a hit-or-miss. On a sub 3" phone, that will be an absolute disaster.

    The iPhone SE is probably as close as you'll ever get to this.

    This. Basically the iPhone 4 without a bezel? I'd line up now for that.
