We call them women, not females. They aren't specimens in a zoo exhibit, just so you know.

The rest is, of course, false.
That is the second time you have been touchy on this subject.
Perhaps more discussion is needed to ease your angst.

To be fair, a lot of women hate being called females, including myself. When I usually see the term female, it is in a derogatory manner. Not saying you did that, per se. I would much prefer the term woman. Sorry for going off topic.

This is the the latest of many posts where you have made disparaging comments towards women and people of other nationalities.

Discussing your sexism and xenophobia does not seem very interesting or profitable to me. You should just stop.

I love the big screens on phones my G1 had a tiny 3.2 inch screen which was ok because that was the only choice us original Android adopters had. I upgraded when the 4.52" Galaxy SII was released and plan on waiting for the Galaxy Note 3, which is supposed to have a 6" screen. Using a blue tooth ear piece eliminates the hassle of holding a big phone up to your face and it still fits in your pocket. I will never go back to a smart phone with a small screen.

PC Police? Or just your typical hyper-sensitive liberal? Everyone "should just stop"
saying anything that YOU can find a way to interpret as "disparaging"? Is there a
set of guidelines that we all should be going by? Perhaps something by Saul Alinsky?

Agreed, I also had (actually still have) the original G1 and now have an S3; I won't be getting anything smaller, and probably will go larger when it's time to upgrade.

I still have my G1. It still works and looks brand new. People complain about plastic phones, but if you put it in a good case it will keep it protected. My phone was dropped many times, even left it on the back of my truck and drove off. Came back and found it in the middle of the road no damage done.

Sorry for the off topic post.

I've wanted one of the larger screen cell phones to use as an ebook reader, not a phone, but I've always shied away from them due to the cost of data plans. When Amazon sold their larger Kindle HD with mobile access and a service plan that cost $50 a year I thought that is just the thing I want but in a 4 or 5 inch size, something that will fit in a pocket.

Does anyone know of such a product?

Non-subsidized phones don't necessarily require data (or phone) plans at all.

I have some old android phones I use on wifi only. This new one is on a. Tmo prepaid SIM that ends up costing $15/yr for my very few talk mins and 1yr expiration extension. 2g data is available for $2 if you need it for a day, $3 for 3/4g. I use a freedompop wifi dongle ($99) that comes with 500MB. A month (or 1GB if you jump through a trivial, one-time hoop. Google for info). It's worked fine.

You are quite right.
Easy rejoinders quickly came to mind for both those people looking for problems in a very bland discussion.

I just avoided both, though I was saddened that the conversation string was cut so abruptly because others besides myself also sought to avoid the mud puddle that had suddenly appeared on the path.

Google's (LG's) Nexus 4 works fine without a sim in at all (Well, it won't let you make phone calls), I got the phone before the new sim arrived and was using it as a small wi-fi only tablet type thing for a few days.

My Samsung YP-G70 (Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5) is a 5 inch tablet, no possiblility of putting a sim in at all (In the UK, at least, the 4.2 inch version is £80 at Amazon at the moment). Worked great for eReading, Skype, Games, Web Browsing etc etc.

The Samsung Galaxy Player might be worth checking out.

Many of us seem to be waiting to see if in the next day or two, new and improved SG Players are going to be presented.
(Especially better screens.)
