About this thing now too big to be a -- they said it's too small to be -- tablets so exactly what is the Samsung galaxy -- our next guest we'll explain joining us now.
In DC and this thing all things digital as at that I start -- -- technology -- that the onstage now.
Walt that might be the most memorable depending you've ever written exit looks like a piece of toast -- -- -- on -- -- -- -- -- -- car.
It's personal hi guys -- -- this is.
This is not.
And I think it's too big -- it's too big to be practical.
To be uses a phone unless you are one of those people would always uses.
A Bluetooth headset or only you know does speaker phone calls for that obviously the size of it doesn't matter part.
I think most people at least.
Part of the time if not all of time are holding an up there like I just -- you can see that it's it's really very large for that for that.
As far as being too small to be a tablet yes it's smaller than the seven -- tablets which had -- are about the smallest -- Sold in any quantity but you know I think there are people as they said in there look it's it's not.
Doesn't have the apps -- the spaciousness of saying iPad but I did say that I think they're people who will.
Be attracted to the trade off of portability.
And and -- yet having a bigger screen -- a phone and -- They'll make that compromise -- make that that didn't deal now as you -- just sad and it's you -- about your column yet mixed feelings.

Create a note with a stylus.
And text message or her email later uploaded to FaceBook or whatever so I think there's -- population of folks.
And that are looking for that even on the iPad you can see.
They're bunch of maps that lie you do that and there are third party tab stylus is that people buy.
So I think having the stylus may be more the key to this -- Anything else.
That's why -- mixed feelings I think that Samsung did I don't I don't think it's it's really a practical phone.
But and I think they're better tablets but I do think.
This -- really makes a difference here -- for some segment of the population and it's all about choice.
Walt as we go hold up to her and I think you're looking for a -- that it lumpiness.
-- -- Did I think I see him twice as I my husband talking on his -- which is strangely large.
And I laughed out loud yesterday and -- they're even care folks want to thank you up with that -- along a piece of.
