Sub 4" superphone? why not?
Don't know if this is the right place but...
Where the heck are the normal sized Tegra 2 phones? I would LOVE to see something like the HTC Shift / Merge but with:
- Tegra 2
- Front Facing Camera
- Extra Large Battery
- Keyboard (Obviously)
- Normal Sized Screen, but a resolution as close to 1080p as is economically feasible.
- Notification LED (multicolor would be nice)
So basically a smaller thunderbolt with a keyboad and a better battery (oh and Tegra, but that ain't happening unfortunately)

I'm not surprised they aren't making them, but I do think they should make a few at 3.7". I really like 3.7" screens as do many others, but will be ok with a 4". Thats my limit for a "pocket phone." Most new phones seem to be going 4.3" which is too big to comfortably hold in my hand (ala EVO), so as long as they release good 4" phones like the Atrix, I'm good

Im sure there will be some 3.7 in phones coming out this year. The size is just to convenient qand popular to ignore. I think that many manufacturers are making larger sizes in an attempt to really outshine the iphones small screen. The huger popularity of the Droid X and the Evo 4g didn't hurt either in sure.

To that end, it wouldnt hurt to have a front facing camera, great battery life and the power to keep me going for the 2 or so years I am hanging on to it. Being a phone first and foremost I don't see how something that I cannot hold comfortably (skype or calling) would be a good user experience. Yes I can get a headset. Yes I can get a stand. But why? Why do I have to buy accessories that cost more then the phone to make it work right before I walk out of the store?
Maybe we should look at it this way: If I had, for instance, the Moto Xoom in my briefcase, what would I then not need my PHONE to do? What features are intrisic to a device built for communication?
* Sorry, but it's place in getting tablets a marketbase shouldn't be ignored.

I really don't refer to my device as a phohe anymore. It's really a hand held computer that can also make phone calls. Most health care professionals will advice you to use a bluetooth device with your device. I couldn't amagine using mine without one. I would love a device with a screen at 5 to 6 inches that goes edge to edge. I use it as a phone only about 20% of it's overall use.
