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.

A device that wasn't substantially larger (as in a couple of mm max in H&W) I could probably go for.

However I find some of the existing large(r) screen phones unwieldy though so any larger than that and I guess I'd be sticking with what I've got until things either change or I dump myself back into dumb-phone land.

Then I'd have to find whatever the modern equivalent (if such a thing existed) for the wonderful SE w880i credit card sized phone.

In dumbphone land, if you've got a GSM carrier, you can get watchphones, and have been for quite a while now.

Actually, hell, you can get a mediocre, mostly stock Android 2.2 watchphone, now.

Yeah, that's part of the problem though.

1. I really dislike large phones, and
2. I really dislike Android.
