Galaxy Note Success Shows Any Screen Size Can Find A Market

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a 5.3" Android device with a stylus.  Forget what Steve Jobs and Apple feels about the stylus or the screen size for a sec.  Samsung, the current boogyman of the mobile war as far as Apple fans are concerned, has shipped (not sold) one million Notes and will bring it to the US market.

Now, having said that, it's an incredible opportunity.  Would I want a 5.5" iPod touch or iPad?  I would not mind having a go at it and seeing for myself just how such an iOS device would fit into my mobile warrior life and I'm sure that there are many of you out there that are thinking the same thing and agree with me.

Obviously, Apple's dogma to conform to the UI and experience likely is going to prevent this from happening.  Fine.  Still, smartphones to tablets with screen sizes from iPhone's 3.5" screen to the 10.1" Galaxy Tab are on the market.

Apple has a commanding control of the tablet market for now and it has a respectable 30% or so control of the smartphone market (and a huge, huge chunk of the mobile revenue/profit), Apple doesn't have all of the market-share.  I know, that's fine with me too but what I'm getting at is that there are a lot of people who does not agree with Apple's screen size issues.

And I would like a 5.5" iPod touch that can still fit in my pocket or an 8" iPad that weights like half a pound.  Just saying.  And as far as screen resolution fragmentation issues goes, who better than Apple to solve this issue.  I figure if it works on the Mac with different resolutions and screen sizes, why not the iPads?
