Analyst: iPhone 5 to have 4-inch screen, unibody construction
People are buying larger screen size phones at remarkable rates, sales of the Galaxy Note (the largest screen size) are brisk. Most people I show my SII Skyrocket to comment on how much better they like the screen size than their 3.5 inch iPhone.
That iPhones are also selling like hotcakes is a testament to:
-The marketing prowess of APPL and the power of the iPhone brand they have built.
-The fact that the smart phone market is not currently saturated, there are still plenty of new customers for everyone.
-The notion that there are many reasons to prefer one phone over another, screen size being only one.
I would not personally own a 3.5 inch phone again after using a 4.5 inch phone. Eventually, when the market is saturated and there are plenty of offerings at 4.5 inches or better with pixel densities over 300, like the HTC One X, APPL will need to respond with a larger screen size. Either that or introduce something completely different and compelling, which they often do.
