Just a few years ago, the mantra seemed to be "the smaller, the better." However, Apple is changing the face of mobile computing altogether.

Reports said that the iPhone 5 and iPad producer will be releasing tablets, new iPhones and other gadgets with much larger touchscreens. According to a Wall Street Journal article, Apple has been testing smartphone screens which are much larger than the current 4 inches available on the iPhone 5. Furthermore, tablets with 13 inch screens, almost at par with small notebooks and laptops, were being tested.

The tech giant's biggest rival, Korean manufacturer Samsung, also shifted its design towards the larger screen for mobile devices. Their Galaxy Note series were among the company's best sellers. Galaxy Note's rise to fame was due to it's attractively large screen, some buyers said. The Samsung Galaxy Note was launched in October 2011, and sales have been consistent throughout the year. Samsung boasted of the Galaxy's 10 millionth unit sold last August.
