New iPhone September 12 – Times

Apple has scheduled an event for September 12 (September 13 NZT) "where the company will reveal its latest iPhone", according to a New York Times report.

The Times' story quotes "a person briefed on the company’s plans, who declined to be named because those plans had not yet been made public".

As usual, Apple is tight lipped on the event, refusing to confirm if it is for a new iPhone, let alone discussing any features.

Reports in the Wall Street Journal maintain the key feature of the new handset will be a larger display, said to be 3.9 or 4 inches to the current models 3.5.

On the Google Android side of the fence, Samsung and others have super-sized screens – albeit at some cost to battery life.

Samsung's latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S3, has a 4.8-inch display.

The Korean company has just previewed the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which takes smartphone screen size to new record of 5.5-inches.

A screen of 3.9 is too small. Not large enough to make the Android brigade want to switch. Contrary to what Apple thinks - screen size IS important to most business and personal users.

Actually you are not correct , not every one wants and old style phone that is so large you need 2 hands to answer it.

While screen size and dimensions may be important for users with small hands, you have to keep in mind why most users buy smartphones to begin with. Primarily web browsing capabilities, multimedia, texting and taking pictures. Phone features have almost taken a back seat to more of the multimedia features of the phone.

What good is it to have all these features on a micro size screen that you have to expand every sentence to read it or see a larger pic than a thumbnail size?

oh god not another day of insufferable apple only tech blog journalism from most of the media......

Apple REALLY need to raise the bar on this one well and truly beyond a bunch of esoteric tweaks that only a bunch of fan boys would care about.

More of the same with a slighty bigger screen could see an exodus to a more innovative and vibrant platform such as Android

Who would buy a product from a company with such poor ethics. To buy an Apple product you have no principles or are naive.

I don't understand the need for people to bag Apple products. Apple Inc is an amazing company in my opinions and the share prices are there to back this claim up. Quite simply if you don't like them nor their products then at least have the decency to be civilized...

If Apple had your attitude Tony there would be no issue. The problem is Apple trying to use the courts to remove the competition!

The similarities of evolution between Microsoft and Apple are staggering. Racing to the lead of their industries on the back of hard core fans, before declining in the eyes of their supporters through attempting to retain their market share through protectionism rather than innovation. Sad.
