    I thought the Paper of Record would become less Apple-and-Android-centric once David Pouge left for greener pastures, but apparently it's not so. In typical Times fashion, they had an article and video up yesterday announcing their surprise discovery that some smartphones are bigger than others: Handset Makers Go Big on Smartphones

    The article mentions Samsung, Sony, ZTE and Huawei. They speculate about possible Lenovo large scale handsets and of course, get all weak in the knees about rumors that there might be a big Iphone in the offing. But not a jot of a mention of the 1520, Lumia or Windows Phone. I know this is largely a function of market share, lack-of-critical mass, and sheer journalistic laziness, but its frustrating.

    I would only attribute this to "journalistic laziness" or someone who prefers to remain ignorant about what is truly going on in the large phablet category for smartphones!

    In fairness it appears to me that they only mentioned "phablets" from MWC. I mean they didn't even mention the Galaxy Note 3!

    This quote though takes the cake...

    Some analysts say they are skeptical that large phones will take off in the United States unless Apple releases one.
