RIM Could Be Preparing A 4.3" Superphone

Whether it is true is another matter, but if RIM can bring out a superphone then as it does say in the article - the competition should start to worry a bit!

I personally think 4.3" is possibly too big, 4" would be big enough I think.
Personally, even 4" is too big for me. Dang, if you want a tablet, go get a tablet! The announced specs for the Torch 2 are a 3.17" screen, and for me for a phone, that's plenty big.

Gotta love it. So according to you, I guess RIM should just close up shop today and be done with it, because no matter what they do, "the others will have game changers." Once ahead, always ahead, huh? Go back and look at your (recent) history, son, that statement's rather absurd.

Exactly! I play golf with a guy who's company just gave him one of those nifty new phones with the huge, hi-res screens and Android. We use the exact same, identical golf GPS app (GolfLogix). If we both start with fully-charged batteries, after nine holes his phone and its beautiful screen are almost dead. After the full eighteen holes, my Torch still has about 50-60% battery left. Which phone is better? I know my answer - and he agrees with me - especially on the back nine!

My Torch has a screen large enough for most everything I do, and therefore has sufficient battery life to actually DO all that stuff!
