Touchscreen gadgets

Just back from Singapore where the proportion of iPhone users is way above the norm in the UK (status symbol more likely than user-interface being the reason for this).
And there were many people walking around having phone conversations on their Samsung Galaxy Tabs. These look way too big to be held up against your ear, lol. Looked like a comedy phone.
However, some of my friends prefer the large screen for easier reading. Another friend had the font size on her iphone messages so large I'm sure someone could read them across the room ;-)
I must confess I now take pictures of text if it's too small and zoom in on the iPhone to read it!
One downside to all this great resolution or screen size is the way the battery drains within a day, sometimes not even lasting a day.
Maybe they can have an OS that switches to monochromatic basic texting function only to help people stay in touch when the batteries are nearly drained...
