    I've decided my next phone must have a 4.3" screen, but I don't really want to go to Sprint to get the Evo. The coverage isn't as good, plus I have to pay $10/mo for 4G service that I can't even access where I live!

    I keep waiting and waiting but nothing is coming out. Has anyone heard anything?

    I haven't heard of any new phones coming out for Verizon that have a 4.3" screen...But when I had the HD2 with T Mobile I ended up not liking the size after the "thrill" of a new phone wore off.

    It was just TOO big to carry around and sort of took away that "mobile" feeling a cell phone should give you...At times I felt like I was carrying around a tablet.

    Texting on it wasn't that fun either...If you have BIIIG hands it shouldn't be a problem, but the average person may find it difficult to type on due to the size.

    I actually went and checked out the HD2 at Tmo just to see how it felt, and it's fine. It's just a smidge taller than my droid, and maybe a quarter inch wider. Also thinner and more rounded than droid. It's about the size of the old Moto Q I had. Feels perfect to me. And I do have big hands so I think typing will be better than my droid.

    I'd like to believe good service is more important than screen real estate but we all learn something new every day. That half inch is really a problem......

    The Motorola Shadow will have a 4.1" screen and is due out in June/July.
