A 4.7 Inch Display at 800 x 480 resolution?

So this is the same resolution as a 3.7 inch display, so you're not able to see more content, it just looks fuzzier. 4 inch displays are already uncomfortable operating with one hand, a 4.7 inch display at the same resolution seems beyond stupid.
HTC is getting more and more behind Samsung!
HTC phones are (h)eavy (t)hick (c)raps compare to samsung!
this 4.7 800x480 garbage probably release in summer 2012 for USA while Samsung releases nexus prime with 1280x720.
Absolutely. It's is ludicrous to have 800x480 on a big a$$ 4.7" display. It's bad enough on 4.3" and 4.5" but 4.7"??? Ridiculous.

This thing is a monster!

I wonder if they will include "Phone can double as a serving platter for an 18-21 pound turkey" in its specifications and features.
I want that monster! Drooling
