    Nope, too big and too small. I haven't held anything with a 4.3" screen yet, but even that seems like it would be too big. I like the 3.5" on my iPhone and the 3.7" on my buddies Incredible, but I think 4" might be about the biggest I'd want for something that was my phone. Now, if you're talking about something to go against the iPad, then honestly, I want a Wintel-based setup so I can load up programs that I also use on my laptop. Something like this 4.8" just seems a little to in-between to me: too small to use full-time as a tablet/laptop and too big to carry in a pocket as a phone. But then again, I've never used anything this size, so I could be off base. And tha price is all right!

    My ideal form factor would be 4.0" across. Seems like the goldi locks for many(just right!).

    Also it would include a detachable hardware qwerty.

    If i had that as my phone I would feel like an idiot unless I used it with a bluetooth. But it's not big enough to use as a laptop replacement.
