Dear Michael Heller,

your articals are so thought provoking and clever. I want a bigger battery and dont care about thin beyond a certain point like you. Point well made.

Why would you want a product that Samsung/Corning sells to its competitors? Like previous products, they'll get something at the equivalent or better. After all, it's funded by themselves, why wouldn't they get the best stuff...

yay i finally see an agreement where people agree on phones dont have to be that thin. Use the extra space for something new to the phone world, or ya for battery.

They need to make it stronger, not thinner.

i'm all for thin, but i would take a bulkier device if it meant i could use it all day and not have to worry about charging

i am happy with the current gorilla glass, but not with the current battery performance.. so yeah, i rather have slightly bulkier phone that lasts more than 2 days than to have thin phone that can only last half a day..
