Internet & Networking "A complete continuum of screen sizes is actually a blessing for Web designers and developers. It forces us toward adaptive solutions that respond to diverse capabilities instead of being able to draw arbitrary cut-off points for separate mobile, tablet, and desktop sites. So I for one, welcome our six inch fonblet/phablet friends and look forward to further diversity in screens that allow us to access the Web." Hadn't thought of it this way yet. Clever. Aside from this, I'm happy with all these sizes - it means there's something for everyone. Just because I prefer 4.3", doesn't mean everyone should, or that I'm going to ridicule those that prefer larger or smaller displays.

I agree Thom. I also use a 4.3" device, the maximum size I can probably use before I go two handed.

Its very nice seeing people trying out different form factors and choosing what they like.

I also have a twitch when ever anyone mentions 'the fold', its like people asking about web safe colours.
