ABSTRACT
The article discusses studies on how users respond to handset screen size. It cites the conclusion of Thomas Thornton, a cognitive psychologist at Perceptive Sciences in Austin, Texas, that the trend toward smaller devices goes along with the need for smartphone functionality. Thornton developed a metric showing that Apple's iPhone came out on top ahead of Nokia's E62 and Research in Motion's BlackBerry 8800.
