Commentary: Smartphones Big & Small

Mon May 9, 2011 - 8:41 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

All Things D's Ina Fried wrote a post ("Smartphone Makers Think Small (and Big) in Attempt to Stand Out from the Pack") comparing AT&T's new offerings.

In one corner is the HP Veer 4G:

With a screen that measures just 2.6 inches, the Veer is impossibly cute, but also packs a slide-out keyboard, hotspot capability and other features typically found on larger-size smartphones.

And in the opposite corner, there is the finger-stretching, 4.5-inch Samsung Infuse 4G.

The Infuse is pushing the size limit of what can be thought of as a phone. The Infuse doesn't look that different from Android devices with slightly smaller screens, but all that real estate comes in handy when viewing Web content and videos, among other uses.

She noted the Veer isn't the only member of the "small-but-mighty" category. Sony Ericsson just unveiled plans for a second generation of its mini line of Xperia Android phones which have a 3-inch screen.

She also remarked how it was interesting that HP is leading with the Veer rather than the Pre 3 device.
