Would it be somewhat accurate to say that many of the people who dislike small screens on phones don't use, carry or want an iPad? If so I can certainly see the attraction having a larger screen on the phone. My iPad is almost always with me and it's my go to device over my iphone when I want to look something up quickly, do a little surfing or whatever. My iPhone gets used mostly as a phone, a little for my To Do list and calendar but it's not used heavily like my iPad. For that reason I think I don't appreciate the larger screens on smart phones. My iPhone is my main line, but I also have to carry a device for my second line. I use the android platform for my second line and have had phones from Samsung, the galaxy nexus to the HTC One X and now the smaller HTC One S. I like the One S okay but it doesnt get used anywhere near as much as my iPad. If I didn't have an iPad I'd probably settle on the HTC One X for the larger 4.7 inch screen. Based on my current set up with my iPhone my iPad and my Mac laptop I don't think I'd care if the next iPhone had the same screen size, actually I prefer a smaller phone so I'd like to see nothing over 4". If you have or had an iPad or if your iPad was your main go to device would that put less importance on buying a smart phone with a larger screen? I think the only way Apple is going to satisfy everybody this time around is to offer the iPhone in two screen sizes. That may sound like a stretch but they did it with the 11 inch and the 13 inch MacBook air and both laptops sold incredibly well. I think the phone market is more split on screen size than the laptop market is between 11 and 13 inches therefore it seems like it would be a prudent move by Apple. Certainly going to be interesting to see what they come up with, there is a lot of phones out there in a multitude of sizes and Apple must be looking at things differently than they did just a short year ago.
