Offering bigger displays than the iPhone has helped Android gain smartphone share ... can it help tablet OEMs trying to challenge the iPad's high-end dominance? While a Microsoft insider claims a 14.6" "Surface Book" is being considered, SamMobile passes on a rumor that Samsung (SSNLF.PK) is working on a 13.3" tablet with a built-in keyboard dock. Barring hardware advances, devices of such size will get uncomfortable to hold after a while. Separately, reports are floating around that the Galaxy S IV will feature a 5" 1080p OLED display and 13MP camera.

    If only Apple could get their act together and introduce an iPhone maxi with a bigger screen they would have a much larger smartphone market share.

     

    Perhaps one day!

    Personally I'm not a fan of the larger phone trend. I think the iPhone5 is a great size and there's no need to go bigger. What is the appeal of having a larger phone? Please don't say watching movies...
