Phones go big (again)

Adriene Hill May 16, 2012

Remember the original cell phones–brick sized devices–that you carried around in their own case.  We’ve moved on from the ultra-big… or at least it seemed like we had.  For a while, small was all the rage.  Razr anyone?  But now, big is back.  The WSJ and Reuters are reporting the next-gen IPhone will be 4 inches from corner to corner (current Iphones are 3.5 inches).  And it will not make it the largest phone on the market.  Samsung’s Galaxy S III will be nearly 5 inches.  HTC also makes 4+ inch phones.  That should make this guy happy.
