So if 6" isn't even half of the printable area of one mmpb page turn... how does increasing the screen size 1-1.5 inches suddenly make it the same "printable" area of a mmpb?

I get what you're saying, but that 1.5 inch increase will still leave you woefully short of the viewable area on two mmpb pages, so would the increase in screen costs be worth it in the long run—for the extra paragraph you might be able to squeeze into it?

... and the touch screen UI can bite me.
