I am still waiting for high end small Android smartphone that is something like 4" to 4.3" screen. I might have no choice and buy Razr M instead of wait. I don't understand why the smartphones have to be so big that force anyone to use two hands unless you have a big hand.

BTW: I do not buy Apple production. Never own any of it, so do not suggest me to buy iPhone. :p

"Amazon?s Kindle Fire, Google?s Nexus 7 and Barnes & Noble?s Nook Tablet are all prime examples in the smaller market. With Apple planning to announce the iPad Mini at a media event next week, the move towards smaller and more portable tablets is only going to pick up steam."

Maybe I'm unique in this regard, but I didn't buy a Nook tablet because I wanted a 7" tablet, I bought one because $200 is what I was willing to pay for a tablet (the Nexus wasn't out yet). We don't have small tablets because people want small tablets, we have them because people want cheaper tablets.

This is true for every screen... we've always wanted bigger screens, but the technology needs to be available to sell them cheaply. NPD Display Search could have summed up their entire study by just saying 'People want to spend less'.
