    No. I am looking forward to a 10"-11" RT tablet to compliment my 4.3" L900. No interest in a 5.3" phone, especially with a stylus. Been there, done that for 15 years with Palm Pilots, Pocket PCs and WM.

    Why would you want to lug around two devices when you could just use the tablet?

    Care to pick OKC over my Heat?
    No way am I making it that easy on LeBron!!

    I grew up in FLA, and have been a Bucs fan all my life, and a Magic fan since they hit the floor during that expansion. Watching Orlando implode this season would be bad enough, without your Heat positioning the salt shaker right above the open wound!!

    Seriously, the OKC VS. Heat is the matchup everyone wanted. Should be a blast...

    Pretty sure 4.3" is my sweet spot for size and functionality on a mobile phone. I'll have a tablet for times I need the extra space. 5.3" is way to big (for me).

    Damn Board Express
    @Preluva. Because I won't be lugging the 10-11" tablet around. I will be using it around the house for browsing and blogging, and delegate the real chores, like: CAD, video editing and publishing to my hefty desktop.

    Several years back, I read about an XP emulator. A 10-12" flat panel that would remain in the dock till you picked it up at which point your primary PC screen would go black and the wireless panel would emulate your screen. When I tried to buy one 3 months later, it was no where to be found. Will finally get what I have been waiting for these many years, in only a few months.

    I'd be really tempted to buy one...ONLY if Nokia put the power button on TOP! With a phone that big you need all the space you can get to hold that sucker. But dang right I'd be all over it if HD clear black AMOLED screen at 5.3" with curved glass comes out.

    I like the 4-5" area. I have a Focus, and I like the 4" screen, but I consider that to be the low limit. I think an iPhone is just too small. On the other side, I'd think the Note would be larger than I'd like to carry, I'd top out on something like the Titan 2.

    I think the galaxy nexus is a good size, I would love to see a WP8 device with about that size screen. But my hands are big enough to effectively use the device, that is also important.

    Most certainly... I actually am waiting for a "Samsung Galaxy Note W" to be launched... I love the form factor of the Note... It fits perfectly in my palms... so why not a Windows 8 Note version :)

    I would buy it if it was Windows 8 RT, and or Windows 8 with phone with Windows phone 8 as an "app" :)

    Galaxy Nexus with WP8 would be awesome . I love the feel of that phone. Non pentile screen would be nice but beggers can't be choosers

    I think the bigger screens are being driven by the need for bigger batteries to feed LTE antennas more than anything else, the manufacturers are just doing a good job of "selling" it to consumers.

    Probably not. I wouldn't say never but my 900 seems like the perfect size for me right now. Any bigger and it'd start being really bulky in my pocket, especially with a case.

    That is way to big for a phone. I travel in a lot of bad places, so I want my phone hidden in my pocket and anything over 4"'s or so is way to big.

    You would carry a 7" inch phone? Dom Joly would be proud.

    I do not see my hands getting any bigger any time soon, but, I do see my eyes getting worse over time. So that is where a bigger screen would come in handy..Once eyesight goes bad.

    Else anything really over 4.8 is too big and start's getting into the phablet area..

    Or, similarly, a Windows 8 phone in that form factor? I have read rumors of Samsung and Nokia about a "hybrid device" and I am hoping that is what they are talking about. I am rocking a Samsung Focus right now, and used to have a Titan (screen shattered). That Titan gave me a taste of what I am really looking for, and I'm super attracted to the Galaxy Note and hoping that with Apollo we might get a device this size.
    Four inches is fine.

    I can barely get my fat *** into my designer skinny jeans. Absolutely, no room for a 5.3" phone.

    I see a lot of small people (women, mostly... weird) using those (Galaxy Note) at the mall. They look ridiculous with those monsters to their ears, in my opinion.

    It kind of makes me remember those times with the Nokia NGage and "taco talking" or something like that.

    the note looks so grossly oversized. not for me. maybe 4.7-4.8 with almost no bezel at all is my sweetspot...

    Absolutely not. 5+ inches is ridiculously large for a phone. Besides, I thought one of the benefits of the Metro interface and live tiles was that it would look great and be easy to use on smaller screens.

    I think the whole idea of the Note is to use it with a bluetooth headset and not put it to your ear unless in a pinch.

    I wouldn't mind a large screen, large format phone. I'd like to see it with a stylus and options that could turn it into a portable small format tablet similar to how I used to use my PDA's
