    I'd love something like the HTC Rezound in wp7 format. The Note is a bit too big for me (anyone remember trigger happy tv?), but the idea of 720p screen on a 4.3" handset would be fantastic for showing my photography to clients (and of course for watching movies).

    The Apollo update will support 1280720 apparently.

    After seeing Zoolander, I thought the future of mobile phones was absurdly tiny devices. How wrong I was...

    HP/Palm was too, based on the response many people had for the Veer...

    Personally I think a 5.3" screen is too large. I think something the size of the Galaxy Nexus is about as large as I'd go. Actually, I think something around 4.0" that doesn't look stupid (in other words something that is NOT like the mock-ups of the iPhone 5 with a 4.0" screen on the current-size device) is a good size - not too large, not too small.

    No. I finally held a Galaxy Nexus the other day and put it down in a second. Samsung plastic is just so pathetically underwhelming and the size of it is just plain ridiculous.

    I can see HTC making a Rezound-like device for Apollo. If they get the marketing out and the thickness slightly more in check, I think the pixel density (plus no PenTile) can be an area they can hurt Samsung.

    I would for sure...am contemplating picking up the Note but I'm really liking the WP7 OS.

    I wouldn't even have to think about it. In fact, if the Note comes out in America, it will be the one phone that will make me reconsider going back to Android.

    I would consider it, but the size would be a turn off. I would like the features in something more like 4.5". Sometimes I miss having a stylus. I actually wish Microsoft would reconsider making the Courier. I started saving for that when the first rumors hit. Lol.

    I agree. I think one thing they should work on is screen resolution because having a 4.7 inch screen with poor resolution like on the Titan just takes away from the benefits of having the larger screen.

    The nexus isn't even really that big. Not to mention you do not see any pixels so the whole pentile debate is moot. Moto used crappy pentile screens which is why it was so obvious to see when using it. Samsung was a different story.

    Isn't the Rezound SLCD anyways?

    FWIW, I'm an HD nut and I have never looked at my Titan and wished it was higher resolution. That seems a bit blown out of proportion. That said, I probably would on a 5.3" device...

    Well there is difference between Note that is just like tablet and Titan that is hybrid (slate+phone). Well big screens will be hard to carry around because you cannot put them in your pocket like your ordinary phone :) but, WP7 is way better for me ;)
