So 2 un-named people said they "saw" a prototype last year, there were rumors that never happened in 2009, and then iClarified wraps it up with "It may happen later this year, or earlier, or it could get scrapped." Thanks for reporting on ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

I disagree. First of all, material costs would be lower. Less materials = less money. So the overall cost to build would be less. But you also have to consider the margins. Apple could sell a smaller phone at a lower price with smaller margins than a full-sized iPhone, so the cost to the consumer would be less than a full size phone. Apple would just make less money than they would from a full size phone. So why would they do that, you might ask. Well, if this is in fact an accurate report, Apple's thinking is along the lines of expanding the sales reach to people would not otherwise buy a full-size, more expensive phone. In other words, the smaller ipphone sales wouldn't cannabalize full size phone sales/margins, but would instead give apple broader reach and an incremental revenue stream. On top of that, they can probably count on some of those additional customers to upgrade to a larger phone at some point in the future. It makes perfect sense.

I'm not much for preaching, but this is a topic that I am very sensitive to. The questions about cell phone radiation and links to cancer/brain tumors is still open and one of great debate. That said, the scientific community does agree that when using a cell phone, the tissues in the head do heat up, and while the link to cancer has not been proven, the risk to children of problems is much, much higher because their brain tissues are still in active development. Anyone with children should ask themselves if the benefits of their children having a cell phone are worth the incredible risks to their long-term health, development and well-being. For me, the answer is absolutely not.

I love the big screen on my iPhone. But I can see the appeal for some People, that being that it is easier to pop into a pocket etc, but for me it would be easier to loose!!!
