iPhone 5 release pool: Concord says late 2011, 8mp camera, A5 processor, Qualcomm baseband
Continuing our policy on having fun with iPhone 5 date rumors, TiPb is once again adding an analyst to our iPhone 5 release pool. This time it's Concord Securities as reported by Apple Insider:
Kuo says production will begin in September, which would match up with rumors of iPhone 5 only being released this Fall instead of its previous summer slot. He also thinks iPhone 6 will bring more dramatic changes, so this year could be like 2009 was with the iPhone 3GS.
So there you go, Concord, your entry had been added to our iPhone 5 release pool. We'll see how you do come launch announcement!

1. Bigger Screen
2. A5 Chip
3. 1GB Ram
4. 8mp Camera
would be enough
And... maybe 64gb storage would be thankful.
Back in the dark ages, Palm made devices that were 2.8 to 3.2 inches wide. I used to carry that in my back pocket. Back in the stone age, I had a RadioShack calculator that was 2.8" wide. Actually never carried it in a pocket as it was over 5" tall, but was pocketable. For me, these devices were a touch too bulky.
So, somewhere between 2.3 to 2.6 inches in width is the sweetspot for me. And I think for most folks.
I still don't understand why you would want a bigger screen. Why not just buy an iPad, or a TV, if you want a bigger screen.
Why would I want a bigger screen? Because websurfing, games, email, entertainment, media would be more fun with it. What I'd like to see is the so-called edge-to-edge screen. Maybe 0.5 mm of bezel on the sides and just short of the tangency point of the corner on top and bottom. As edge-to-edge as possible.
What if they kept the same size screen but made the phone a little smaller? That may make the screen look bigger.
Besides, think about all those hipsters and their skinny jeans, how will a massive phone fit in their tiny little pockets?
