I can’t believe these link bait crap stories are still circulating. How long have we been hearing about a larger sized iPhone? At least two years now, right?  And everyone is going nuts because of this Reuters article. What’ factual matters are in it?  “Apple Inc is exploring launching iPhones with bigger screens, as well as cheaper models in a range of colours, over the next year, said four people with knowledge of the matter, as it takes a cue from rival Samsung Electronics. The moves, which are still under discussion…” Did anyone doubt that Apple was discussing this as a possibility? This was true yesterday…last month…last year…probably since it launched in fact. This isn’t news.

It’s somewhat pathetic that every time there’s a headline about this that everyone flocks to it and encourages sites to go further down the rabbit hole. And when it doesn’t get announced that doesn’t change the noise – it just pushes back the fictitious date of when it will be released.

We need more stories about vaporware apparently…

  1. And for $99 it appears. Assume that will be a two year contract. Carriers will love that, as they will have to subsidize the other $500-$800 bucks. Be careful what you wish for big guys.

  2. The classic say something enough until it becomes true. At some point yes the rumors and the facts will line up but it does no good to report on it like it is breaking news. It would be different if we had evidence like SKUs in the system for different colors and sizes.
