How do you girls carry your Notes around in your handbags without scratching the tv screen on the front of it? My girlfriend wants one as apparently it's the latest female accessory, but I'm concerned she'll ruin it.

Do you have any suggestions for the males among us that don't have a handbag to put these huge phones in?

It fits in ones pocket... it's designed too. It comes with a leather cover, so no chance of the screen getting scratched. As the line blurs between phone use, social contactablilty and Net access Blurs, The demand for larger screens will grow. I'd say my next phone will have a flexible screen which will probably be bigger than the Note. After being out of the Mobile Phone owning market for at least 10 years, it took something exceptional to entice me back. The Note fits that bill perfectly.

Are you saying you wouldn't like a larger screen.... Even with the flexible ones on the technological horizon ?

If I could fold it up to the size of a Nokia 8210 yes. There's no need for a screen bigger than that of the iPhone, even that is too big. We really don't have to have a 5inch LCD in our pockets to survive the ten minute bus journey lol.

Anyway, this is far too off topic lol. I apologise.

You may not.... I do.... I talk to my Parents and other UK family on Skype, whilst at work on Night shift. It also doubles at a Brilliant Sat Nav., which is something I meant to purchase ages ago.... Great for sharing video. I barely use it as a phone actually.

Plus, of course, they don't get hit by the apple tax.
Bloody hell fella you talk some shite...

Both are very good phones you will be please with whichever you chose, the apple will have a higher second hand value and give you street cred.

Buy the one that is cheaper.

I think it's a software thing, Lion is a sack of shit IMO and I donth think it gets on with the Sohpos AV that I'm required to use.

Also the new massive track pad is really hard to do right clicks on.

I'd still rather have it than a Windows PC though...

Dear god, Apple discussions are going the way of discussions on religion and politics. They're only phones ffs, some people like Apple products, some people don't. Calm yourselves!

Tech discussions get passionate. People spend a lot of time and money investing in their choice, whether it be a phone, operating system, tablet, software, etc. This is nothing .... you should see some of the heated discussions around the competiting software I work with. We have people that dedicate their whole careers to one vendor. When that vendor starts to slide, which naturally happens in the circles of tech, you should see the passions rise.

I thought that Gerry's explanation was the standard response in some circles....you could however say that Apple have done in IT what every one has been trying to do ever since the word Enterprise was bandied about....
