The iPhone is a big phone, bigger isn't always better. Yes it's good  
to be big when using fingers, but we have to do the best we can.  
OpenMoko isn't just the Neo either, there are bigger screened phones  

The big competitive advantage is innovation and freedom, we can add  
features that would be deemed too costly to write. No hardware needs  
to become obselete just to keep hardware revenues coming.
