More mobile phones with great big screens

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Mobile phones with great big screens.  Who needs a tablet?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     It’s a phone category  pioneered by Samsung with the Galaxy Note and now the Galaxy Note II.   Big five inch screen mobile devices that fall somewhere between smartphones and tablets.    The LG Intuition has joined the competition on Verizon and now there is the HTC Droid DNA.  Its 5 inch display boasts 440 pixels per inch.  HTC Design Director Jonah Becker…

“It’s a crystal clear image.  And that’s if you’re taking a photo and you have a still image or if you’re looking at a moving video.”

The HTC Droid DNA features the latest quad core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm and feels surprising light for such a large phone.   Are these phones too big?   No doubt they are for some, but Samsung’s success with the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note II proves for many, they are a good fit.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
