Apple's iPad and iPhone are being disscused after a report appeared in the Wall Street Journal claiming that Apple was testing versions of these devices with larger screens.

The Wall Street Journal does point out that although these products are being tested with suppliers, that does not mean that they will make it onto the market, as various versions and prototypes are routinely tested by Apple before being refined.
