[citation]IHS also speculated that a new 4-inch screen iPhone will keep a pixel density of about 320 ppi, but jump to a 1024 by 768 pixel format.[/citation]
Using a 4:3 format would mean that the iPhone would be a lot wider, so I have my doubt that Apple will change the aspect ratio of the screen.

They do offer budgets, 16g,32g,64g. Those are priced at different amounts. Buy which one is in your budget.

Perhaps 1366x768?

Wow, thats a lot of money. They will probably exceed that much in my opinion because many people who bought iPad 1's didn't buy a two. It will be time for an upgrade. I mean look at this, people are in line already! http://detectapple.com/people-in-line-for-new-ipad-already/

will this mean good news for the consumer?

apple invests in insane screens, we see a trickle down to normal pc monitors?

i mean an ipad 3 costs 500$ right? if we cut all the extra crap out of it, what does just the screen cost...

i mean i have a 1920x1200 currently, would love a 2560x1600, but cost... but if that 10 inch screen gets made in bulk... will it effect the process to make computer monitors too, so we can be offered 2560x1600 at a 500$ or less price point?

"IHS said that more than 80 percent of the money Apple spent for iPhone displays were attributed to the 326 ppi, 960x540 QHD pixel display that is used for the iPhone 4/S"

The display on the the iPhone 4/4S is 960x640.

[citation][nom]soldier37[/nom]Apple has finally fallen behind Android and I just traded in my Iphone 4 last week for a galaxy note. Waiting for the Iphone 5 has taken way too long so Ive moved on. Even when the 5 does come out this Fall it wont be able to compete against the Galaxy S3 and those specs it supposedly will have. It was nice for a while but now I dont miss it.[/citation]

Don't be too sure. A lot of people just don't care about the specs and focus more on the entire package...build quality, ease of use, ecosystem , etc. So while the Galaxy S3 will undoubtedly be a spec monster how will the surrounding ecosystem be? Will it still be encased in plastic? Will it be just as easy or easier to sync your music library and playlists for the average consumer?

I really like my Razr Maxx but I won't say it's better than an iPhone 4...it's just different.

Apple wouldn't change the screen ratio and pixel ratio of the iPhone. They will just make it bigger with the same resolution. They did the 4's display as it was easy to upscale everything from the previous phones as it was just twice the resolution. Anything different will screw up apps.

Ya know all this negative about paying workers. It's not just Apple. No one on manufacturing lines in that area make much money. Blame the minimum wage laws honestly. If the US wasn't full of people wanting 15$ an hour to tighten down screws all this stuff would be made here at minimum wage

Apple should just buy a LCD manufacturing company with its almost 100 billion in cash.
That would reduce cost and then they can start research on OLED displays for their iTV line.

I'm sure that's been considered by minds greater than ours.

I too would love to see more jobs here in the USA but apple can pay employees in the USA minimum wage who will be angry and resent them, feel entitled to more $$ whereas they could bay $5/hr in some other countries and workers would be thrilled to make that much money. I would assume those happy workers making more than they ever have are likely to be more productive than disgruntled workers here in the states
