Apple iPhone reportedly outselling all Android phones on AT&T, Sprint

The number of iOS phones being sold through AT&T and Sprint is greater than the number of Android phones on either carrier, according to Canaccord Genuity analysts.

iPhone 5 to have 4.6-inch Retina display

This next generation iPhone, whatever it may end up being called by the end of the year when it will almost certainly be announced and launched, will continue the iPhone trend of having a Retina-quality display, this time at a larger 4.6-inch size. This update to the iPhone - or any size jump in the iPhone's display - has been criticized by analysts as being outright absurd due to the undeniably gigantic amount of hardware and software partners Apple has dedicated to the current size and shape of the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4.
