Ans yet I was shouted down as a fanboy in earlier discussions on this, for suggesting exactly that, and that being a likely reason Apple hadn't included it. :p

You appear to have posted a link to some 4" Samsung phones to show that they have no interest in smaller screen phones.

Yeah, it must be some sort of conspiracy.
