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.

5 million may be a pretty large number, but I'd save staggering for phones that sell 100 million or so, you know the one.

As Thom said, this is noteworthy because just about everybody was pocking fun at the Note because of its size -- and let's not forget that Samsung certainly can't count on an Apple-like cult status to move its wares.

In other words, I think the number is, in fact, impressive when put in perspective.

It is impressive but it does not mean that everyone wants 5.3" screens. It just means some percentage of users want 5.3" screens.
