    A study shows that the size of the screens is increasing
    except in tablets and laptops

    A new study from NPD DisplaySearch today shows that on average
    the diagonal size of LCD and other displays on electronic devices
    and public signboards is on the rise, with the notable exception of
    mobile PCs.

    In some areas, NPD is showing huge growth, like the whopping 38
    percent projected increase in mobile phone screen size between
    2010 and 2013


    Display sizes are also making modest increases in other areas, like
    the 5 percent change in desktop monitors (from 19.9-inches in
    2010 to a projected 20.9-inches in 2013), or the 29 percent spike
    in portable media player size.

    Given that Apple has a huge portion of both the PMP and mobile
    phone spaces, its recent introduction of larger-screened iPhones
    iPod touches and iPod nanos likely influenced the significant
    project growth in those areas.

    Android and Windows Phone 8-powered devices are also seeing
    screen sizes packing on extra inches, however, so the fire was
    already started long before Apple came along to help bring up
    the average.

    Why are mobile PC screen sizes trending downwards? NPD says
    it’s because of a couple of factors, including the rising interest
    in ultrabooks (though there’s some debate about how interested
    customers actually are in that category), and more importantly
    the growth of tablets.

    Average sizes are expected to fall from 13.6-inches to 12.2-inches
    between 2010 and 2013 in the mobile PC segment, and if Microsoft’s
    new Windows 8 OS makes the splash in tablets the company seems
    to be hoping it will with the Surface and third-party offerings, that
    number could go even lower as 10-inch devices flood the market.

    In the end, that means consumers can continue to expect their
    video and digital image media devices to get larger and larger for
    the most part, which is also good news for content producers and
    those working in advancing digital A/V tech.

    I’m just hoping all mobile phones don’t go on a Galaxy Note II growth
    spurt because that would require too much rethinking in terms of how
    we design and build pants pockets.​

    It took a study to figure all this out, hmm ?

    No one mentioned it'd all happened before, with CRT ?

    That's just all part of growing up and, getting old. Um..unless of course, you get it caught in a drawer or, the neighbor's dog runs off with a piece, when you nipped out to grab the morning paper.
