For smartphones it's hard to make a readable screen that fits nicely
in your hand and pocket both. For regular cell phones size still
matters. Those old brick phones used to fit nicely in my hand but not
so much in my pocket...
And if driving while chatting ain't enough, some devices will now read
your texts (including acronyms) to you.
Well it's OT to get into in great depth here, but anything that starts
by holding a video screen to your ear, is pretty bent.
But even some little stuff, like button size and placement, and on my
dumb phone messages that don't pop up at just the wrong time, would be
a good start.
That link's good. And those new big screen phones are not far removed
from that. I still like the smaller 3.5" screen phone I have and hope
they keep at least some of the new phones in that size. I used to
carry my Palm Pilot and mp3 player around. Now that's all in one small
package that surfs the internet and makes calls too. IMO that's
progress even if I do have to hold the screen up to my ear... 8-O
