iPhone 5 was real, got scraped Last Minute by Steve Jobs
New rumor report says that the redesigned iPhone 5 was real and Apple had a prototype featuring a larger screen.
I was supposed to actually hold in my hands by now an iPhone 5 with larger screen and new design. What I have got is an iPhone 4S that looks the same as the iPhone 4. Why? Business Insider has a new report up that is supposed to have the answer why we do not have an iPhone 5 by now. Tons of rumors ahead of the 2011 iPhone reveal were talking about a new iPhone 5 with stunning looks and larger screen.
Apparently Steve Jobs killed it last minute because he did not like the larger screen, because it would fragment the iPhone. Fragmentation is Apple's major argument against the Android phone camp. Apparently he did not want to risk losing this argument at this point.
The report also claims that Apple has built an iPhone 5 that looks somewhat like this. It had a larger and better quality screen and also a 10MP camera.
Either way. The iPhone 5 is now predicted to arrive in late 2012 with LTE on board.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
