Re: is it an iPad or monitor?
True, Apple cannibalized the iPod when it integrated music into the iPhone. They had to know that larger iPhones would hurt iPad sales. I think you're right - the key here is to determine which features make the iPad stand out from the iPhone and focus on developing those.

SusanN, 

It's much better to carry all your devices in a bag, instead of looking like a tech marsupial. :D

Li Tan, 

Well, not even the iPad mini is good to put it in your pocket. Why people want to put everything in their pocket? That's why there is a huge bag market now especially thought for carrying devices, for both men and women. And, the iPad Pro has been thought for meeting enterprise needs.

Pedro, 

Why would someone want to watch a movie on a smartwatch? And yes, you can zoom in.

@Pedro: Haha! apple clothes designed specifically to carry all your apple devices. I love the idea! We can all walk around looking like hikers with big pocketed cargo pants.

They're not that much bigger than the Samsung Galaxies, are they?

As for that bending controversy...I thought we *wanted* bendables!  ;)

Re: is it an iPad or monitor?
I am very pro-smaller devices. They fit better in my hand, I'm less likely to drop them, and I can save cash on a shopping spree for new (and likely very pricey) Apple fashion. I wonder what sort of appeal the small-screen Apple Watch will have to those who prefer larger smartphones. Will Apple start looking into bigger smartwatches too? When will the madness end?

Re: is it an iPad or monitor?
Ha! You know, there are enough massive Apple fans out there to make something like iClothes sell big. Now I have to wonder whether clothing designers ever take the growing size of smartphones into consideration... something I never thought about before.

Re: is it an iPad or monitor?
@soozyg same here. A big screen is great for productivity, but I can't get as much done without a keyboard. Making the iPad bigger is only half the solution.

Re: is it an iPad or monitor?
@vnewman2 I don't own one, but that's the first thing that struck me about the 6 plus - it's huge! I know giant smartphones are a big trend but that doesn't seem like it would fit comfortably in one hand.. or in a pocket, for that matter.
