Phones Get Bigger, Tablets Smaller.

Have you noticed how the screen sizes of phones and tablets seem to be converging? While there are different ways of measuring screen size, and different aspect ratios (squarer, or wider), smartphone screens are getting bigger (the iPhone 5 for example, and Sharp is starting production on 5-inch true HD phone screens). At the same time, smaller seems to be "in" as far as tablets, with the Kindle Fire HD, Barnes and Noble Nook HD and Google Nexus all being recent examples of 7-inch displays, and there is even an iPad "mini" on the way... One could extrapolate that the devices may both end up at, oh, let's say 6 inches? Seems big for a phone, but maybe they'll just make bigger pants pockets to keep up...
