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.

If you buy a Galaxy Note...

The phone is too big. You will look stupid talking on it, people will laugh at you, and you'll be unhappy if you buy it.

That looks like something you'd write to mock the stereotypical Junior High herd mentality - yet he's 100% sincere. Maybe Apple marketing should should borrow that & expand on it a little bit.

"If you buy a Galaxy Note, all the cool kids will talk about you behind your back. If you buy a Galaxy Note, Chrissy will go to the spring formal with your best friend instead of you. And if you buy a Galaxy Note, you'll get pantsed in gym class."

Hey, it would probably work on the current crop of Apple fanboys (at least judging by posts like this: ).
