Samsung Galaxy as lamp

Samsung Galaxy as lamp

Afraid of the dark? Not with a Galaxy Note by your side. Samsung’s full-figured phone filled in for my nightstand lamp and ensured the sun never set in my apartment. And I could swear I’m slightly tanner.

The Samsung Galaxy was released in the US this past weekend and as funny as the review is, it’s also just about spot on. It’s so big it’s going to create a whole new category of “it’s so big jokes … .” I spent some time with one a couple weeks ago here in Taiwan and the device is just about impossible to use as a true mobile device. One handed use, if your hand is big enough, enables all kinds of errors and unless you carry it in your purse (or bag) it’s impossible to carry. I like using a capacitive stylus on the iPad for some tasks but the one that is included feels like I’m using a Palm pilot again.
Are there any Android handsets that don’t use the try it and see if it sticks approach?
