    I could see this being similar to note 2 sizing, with just a tad more height.

    With the right aspect ratio, very small bezel and using JB onscreen buttons this could be very close in size to the N2. However if they don't do all that then it'll be huge.

    LOL...how quickly we forget.

    It really wasn't that long ago that cell phones DWARFED 6.1 inches, and that was not on the diagonal.

    No one even considered using one of these one-handed.



    ...And it was a major breakthrough because it didn't have a battery pack you had to sling across your shoulder like a messenger bag and was attached by a coiled cable.

    THAT ^^ is one of my former avatars...Dr. Martin Cooper, inventor of the Portable Cellular Phone with his working prototype Motorola 8000A, the very phone that he used to make a call to the Joel Engel of Bell Labs, Research Chief while standing in the street at the time. He's one of my all-time heros!!

    From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Cooper_(inventor));

    The original
    Motorola DynaTAC handset weighed 1 kilogram (2.2 lb) and had 35 minutes of talk time. Cooper has said "The battery lifetime was 20 minutes, but that wasn't really a big problem because you couldn't hold that phone up for that long."


    And we complain about batteries that won't last a full day's surfing on the web!! Sheez!

    i actually like the idea of it .. it takes away the need for a tablet. *justin prepares for bashing* i would like to see it in windows 8 format.. *runs and hides*

    Droid X --> SGS3 --> Note II

    But weren't all the "experts" wrong about the original Galaxy Note? Didn't they say that 5.3 inches was too big? And weren't they wrong about the stylus?
    I, personally, use my SGS3 as a tablet device way more than I use it for calls. The ideal device for me would be a tablet that I can use to make occasional calls using bluetooth. But until then, I've asked "Santa" for a Galaxy Note 2 for Christmas. Woo hoo!
