Every week, it seems, the one-upmanship on screen size continues in the Android world. "Not happy with a 4.8-inch screen, well we have 5 inches for you." "Yeah, well we have 5.5 inches." "Is that all? We've got a 6-incher in the works." It's becoming a bit of a burlesque.
But not to worry. I predict that next Christmas, the size competition will fade away as something more interesting and useful takes center stage: the YotaPhone. You've probably never heard of Yota Devices, a Russian mobile electronics company known in Europe for its routers and cellular modems. If its plans become reality, you'll recognize Yota next fall, when its Android smartphone hits the market in the United States.
