GTA03: New case? Bigger screen!

There has been all this fruitless talk about resolution. Well, what is
really limiting the Neo's screen right now is not resolution
(obviously), not speed (at least not on the GTA01, no idea how messed
up the 02 situation is. I'd guess it's faster most of the time.) but
size! If the GTA03 get's a new case design, please consider making the
screen twice as big! Then we are finally at a size were
two-thumb-typing starts to make sense and even people with bad eye
sight can benefit from the high resolution (although I'm not convinced
that second point is a positive one... <_<). The device wouldn't even
have to be bigger for this because so much space was wasted in the
original Neo design. The only handheld I have owned where the screen
could be called big enough was the Tapwave Zodiac (RIP). If you shave
off the gaming controls and make it a little thicker, you get a very
decent phone.
Also, I suggest concentrating more on the horizontal usage. For
example, bring the stereo speakers back but add one below and one
above the display so that they are left and right in landscape. You
can get a pretty good stereo effect at that distance.
