    Tweaked the title.

    Anyway size wise that is about the size of an original DS top screen section.

    Though I am certainly curious about the camera I still find the massive push for them on phones to be odd. What I would be interested in seeing though is someone turning on the motor when the thing is in portrait mode (similar to the beeps your car might make if you leave the seatbelt off). Would probably improve quite a few things.

    Anyway meh but that is typically how I feel about mobile phones, I doubt this will excite me into phone ownership.

    Mainly stopping portrait mode photography and video unless people wanted it.

    my dad works for nintendo.


    people would start to complain... and would have a "don't tell me what to do" effect.. it's a cool idea, but i don't see people enjoying it.. well, we could use a warning on the screen for the first 10 times they try to use the phone in portrait mode... to make sure they know what they are doing..
    but seriously, if there are so many people making videos like that, it's because they want\don't give a fuck.. i don't believe they don't know about it.. i mean, they can see what they are filming on the screen.. they can see there is not too much area on the sides... and if they want more area, just turn it..

    i recenlty own an android phone, i spend more time using it in landscape than portrait mode, whenever i am texting, using apps\internet browsing, anything... in fact, i had a nokia with a touchscreen and used it mainly in landscape mode as well. and its a small phone compared to what i own now..
    it's just more comfortable for me, specially when texting... i feel i am grabbing better the phone so it doesn't fall of my hands..
    the only issue is the default keyboard uses a lot of space on the phone, when it could be smaller, with the keyboard on the screen and the top bar, the reading area when texting or in some cases is really small... giving me 2-4 lines of text i am able to read....

    Simple solution to that then, migles: call it an achievement or display a little smiley face or something.

    I'm pretty sure people who are videoing in portrait mode are well aware of the fact they're doing it?
    I've never once held a phone in landscape and had a portrait photo/video come out.

    aghh @migles beat me to it!
