The answer is NOT tablet-sized displays/phones (like the Arc) but higher resolution! Get the PPI above 300!! Like Sharp 930SH (327 ppi)

Are you only using your hands for the phone?? Don't you need one hand operability??? You wont get that with the 4" and above tablet-sized 'phones' - except for a few piano players and the few with hands like shovel blades of course.

With 327ppi you could have 1280x720 on a 4.5" tablet or full HD 1920x1080 on a 6.7" tablet...

The design - as other Sony Ericsson devices - is awful.

Jusr wanted to get this out the way but researching this from early on people were claiming 3.3" that means that its actually a little bigger. My Samsung wave has the same size display and I LOVE it. Wonderful phone and the display is perfectly fine I never had a problem doing anything.

It's either bada 2.0 for S8500 or this one. Hope the price will be reasonable for Urushi though.
