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.

"People think they want a larger screen.

At least with Android you are allowed to think and want whatever you want. With iOS you have to want what Apple wants you to want.

It is definitely the case that you have to accept the whole thing or nothing when it comes to Apple products. After all, they only produce a limited number of products for iOS. And unless you like the package (iOS, iDevices, iTunes, iCloud, etc.) there are better choices out there. There is no doubt this is a weakness of the Apple products.

However, don't presume for a minute that Apple customers cannot think for themselves. Lots of Apple customers are of the opinion that the whole package works for them and I'm certainly still willing to forego some features for the convenience of the full Apple ecosystem.
