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.

Only those that are tech not tech savvy or really prefer tech news spoon-fed and dumbed down take whatever Armnet, Grubber o Geller have to say about tech, those guys think they have a pretty good grasp of it, many times what they write shows they don't, that's the problem, they are out of touch and they think that because they "use" the technology they understand it.

Apple is all about maximizing profits which translate to streamlining production, small portfolio of successful products, they cant afford to go flexible on screen sizes and stuff, it won't scale on the SW developers side nor on the HW manufacturers. Samsung can, they make the panels and know that not all of us have been cut with the same cookie cutter and are willing to go not with "what's best" according to manufacturer but what as a consumer "feel" is best for them.

I'll jump-ship to the note when the next processor is released and a descent ICS release that includes the Stylus Software (betting my chips on a mod rather than Samsung) is released. Meanwhile apple fans can still "rock" their sub par 3.5'' LCD's, after all a polished turd is still a turd, SAMOLED+ all the way.
