Gigaom : It’s no secret I like large-screened phones and 7-inch tablets. Although I own an iPhone 4S, I use my 4.65-inch Galaxy Nexus far more often. The same can be said of my Galaxy Tab 7.7 as compared to my iPad 2: for me, the smaller slate is a better fit for most of my tasks, and the Apple tablet only comes off the bedside dock for occasional use. I’m not judging these products to say which is better; there are so many personal factors involved in mobile tech decisions. I just happen to prefer larger screened, but still highly portable, devices. Until this weekend, I never knew why.
