Guys and girls. I'm excited about this device. But I'm seem to be the only one, strangely.

I like it too, but I am not sure that it predicates a change for me in my own usage of different devices. At least not yet.

You may have seen further than the rest of us.

Give it some time to find it's own niche or nudge other niches.

Nevertheless, your enthusiasm deserves a reward.

For my tastes, this device is too big for a phone and too small for a tablet.

Last year, I tried a Galaxy Note8 with a 6.3" display and found while using the stylus took me back to using a Palm PDA though I never got the Android Grafitti app to work properly, I couldn't use one hand to both hold the phone and dial.

The build and features look impressive, but it's too big to be a phone for me. And, being a cheapskate, it's also too expensive for me (though, for what it is, it seems pretty well priced compared to a lot of "phablets"). And, as an American (United Statesian?) it doesn't look like it will be available here even if I didn't mind the size (or price).

I'm sure I'm in a tiny minority, but I am just not interested in any phone or tablet that can't have linux installed natively.

Hmnn. I've had decent experiences with Lenovo's tablets, and I will eventually need to replace my 7" PDF reader (aka my Blackberry Playbook). This might be a possibility, if they ever sell it in Canada...

On what phones can you install Linux natively?

The 2009 Nokia N900 (I think that model number was later recycled) came with manufacturer installed linux. It no longer can connect in the US, so I'm making do without.

Apparently, on a lot of them. Just stay tuned as the project is in its infancy.

I'm just curious. Do you read PDFs in reflow, or landscape mode, or specifically formatted documents to look good on small screens? (I have an obscured ebook which is a PDF formatted to look good on regular 6" E Ink screens.) I'd consider all three of these options non-standard.

I tend to read gaming books on my Playbook. D&D, Shadowrun, Earthdawn, Exalted, etc. I read in portrait or landscape and zoom in on the column I'm reading (gaming books tend to go with two columns per page.) It works rather well. Landscape works particularly well when reading tables.

I also read my Girl Genius PDFs on the Playbook from time to time. Landscape with scrolling works best there.

I do not reflow PDFs. That way lies madness. :-P

LG Nexus 5 is the only listed device that can send an SMS, and partially make a phone call, and partially do a mobile data transfer.

I don't like overly large phones, so it's not for me either. I still find computers superior for forums, videos and games, and I dislike reading on tablets/phones, so I don't need all the space. It will appeal to those who downsized to their phones instead of computers and tablets, though.

If it had support for a stylus, and a daylight viewable (transflective) display, I'd be willing to consider it.
