For its big event, Apple (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. (AAPL) Report  is thinking small.

In Cupertino, Calif., on Monday, Apple introduced products that include a 4-inch iPhone, known as iPhone SE. The phone is available for preorder starting Thursday and hits stores on March 31.

Starting at $399 for 16GB, Apple said the device is the most powerful phone with a four-inch display. "It's clear Apple is trying to get everything it can and then some from the iPhone franchise," said TheStreet's technology editor Chris Ciaccia. "The iPhone SE is an example of going back to a size people want, while also appealing to emerging markets with a lower price."
