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. Once real world usability (store-ability, handle-ability) of the form factor comes out the reality of whether they want it or not will be apparent.

Personally, the idea of using something like that as my primary communication device is just nuts to me.


Back in August (?) I bought an SGS2 for myself and SE X8 for my wife (back than she wanted a small device).
I now plan to replace my SGS2 with something bigger (SGS3?), and my wife, which previously wanted something small, plans to take over my SGS2.

Before you ask, both of us have normal-sized hands.
