carriers

I couldn't agree more. There are a decent number of people working for the manufacturers who feel the same way. The issue, as far as I can tell, is the carriers. They seem to think that's what their customers want. That, and/or they find it easy to sell phones with bigger numbers on the spec sheets.

There are some other explanations. Subsidies are a part of it. Really, I think it's a complex web of distortions in the market that conspire to create a disconnect between what many consumers want and what the industry is offering.

You'd think that, at the very least, the success of the (relatively small) iPhone would inspire other companies to make phones of a similar size. I don't have a good answer as to why that's not the case.
