Steve’s passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us. I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.
One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.

"its a big reason why Android handsets continued to get larger."
Thats just not it... They are larger because people want larger screens. Todays phones do WAY too much (IOS, Android, Winmobile, all of them) to waste it on a tiny screen.
Now we have 28nm chips that take care of the battery drain of 4G and those newest 28nm chip based phones are the biggest of them all, GS3, RazrHD, etc... and they are getting even larger on the next round. The next high end phone is going to be the LG based Nexus with a 5 inch screen. I dont know why its hard for you to get that most people want larger screens.
