re: 5-Inch Smartphone Displays To Be Standard In 2013
I think that is wonderful news to hear that everyone will have a giant phone in his or her pocket! With the gaining success of large screen phones this is no surprise that they will continue to increase in size until they will not fit our pockets anymore, and call it a tablet. I like large screens when I am using them, but when I am toting them around town I worry the size will snap ion half in my pocket if I move the wrong way. You nailed it Eric, what will the makers come up with next to impresses as consumers?

Now that I have a Nexus 7 I'm less interested in big, high resolution screens designed for media consumption on my phone. I'd rather see some phones designs focus on battery life, strengthening the reception (including GPS), and keeping the bloody OS updated.
