PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over the years, one thing has been very hard to grasp for some people: the fact that people want smartphones with 4.0"+ screens. These 'some people' seem to believe that because Apple chose a 3.5" display, any display size that isn't 3.5" is wrong. Keep that in mind when you read Samsung's latest little communiqué: the Korean giant has sold (not shipped, sold) more than 5 million Galaxy Notes. Which has a 5.3" screen.

I bought one a couple weeks ago, and it's awesome. It indeed does fit in your pockets unless you like emo Pat Benatar pants. The big screen makes a huge difference, and there's no going back to smaller smartphones if you use this thing for a week.

Now if you're a one-hander and you don't have long fingers then it'll take some customizing so that your common buttons are within reach, but it's totally the way to go if you don't want to lug a phone AND a tablet. It does seem a little big at first but you get used to it real quick.

Also I'm not female.
