    Culd someone please tell me how to upload screenshots from my iPad onto here so I can show you guys what it looks like? I need a free service without an account. Thanks!
    I just recently, as in just now experienced a weird glitch in Safari, instead of being the regular iPad size, it was smaller. Where it should have been was just black, like when you use an iPhone app on an iPad. Kinda.

    The difference was, the size was much bigger than the iPhones screen, I compared :)
    If I was to say, it would be around the 4.3" size...:p

    Here's some screenshots (was going to upload, but would be too annoying to upload an everything...so they're attached.), now I may or may not be saying the next iPhone will have a bigger screen, but why would it glitch to this weird size.

    I am not completely serious, I though it was kinda funny that it's around the size of an Evo's screen, I had one. Would compare it if I still had it.

    Here's links to pics:

    I'm not seeing the pics. Use imageshack or something.

    Yeah, did that just before you posted, it's weird that it would glitch to that size and not the iPhones size. I used my sisters iPhone and compared, I would take half an inch wider and taller maybe...someone could measure it though if they really wanted.

    Edit, I'll get a ruler out just because I'm bored. Will post in a couple minutes.

    Edit: it's about 4 1/4 inches...

    Just by putting them next to each other, it seems bigger than my iPt 4.

    Yeah, it's about 4 1/4 inches diagonal...that's 4.25 inches, around the rumored size

    That diagonal of just the safari part, forgot the do it up to the status bar.

    my iPad started doing that too recently. About 3 weeks after I jail broke my iPad it started doing that. I installed Fullscreen for Safari right J/B'ed.

    OP... did you jailbreak your iOS 5 beta? if so, that is probably why. I think sbsettings does this to the screen.

    You can't jailbreak ios5 beta, I'm on 4.3.3 jail broken. I know I doesn't really mean anything, just coincidental.

    Yes you can, it would just be tethered.

    you didn't answer my question... are you jailbroken?

    From your SS, it looks like you are, which is why this is happening. It has nothing to do with the iPhone 5 or anything else.
