Bigger iPhone Screen? Apple CEO Tim Cook Says No - ABC News

If you follow iPhone rumors closely — and we mean really closely — you might have heard the one about a larger screen for the next iPhone. Rumors this week from China suggested Apple was working on a 4.8-inch screen; the screen on the iPhone 5 measures 4 inches diagonally.
But Apple CEO Tim Cook said today the company believes the iPhone 5 has the “right” screen size. “The iPhone 5 offers a new Retina Display and is the most advanced display in the industry,” Cook said on the company’s earnings call this evening. “It also provides a larger screen size without sacrificing the one-handed ease of use. We put a lot of thinking into screen size and we believe we have picked the right one.”

If they make cell phones any larger, they may as well be called tablets, and they wouldn't be very easily stored in your pants or coat pockets.

I agree. 4.8 inches would look a bit ridiculous anyway. It's perfect where it's at.
