So you thought there would never be a device (besides the Dell Streak) to fit in that stupid awkward size between your 4.3-inch smartphone and 7-inch tablet? Well Samsung are hoping to fill the void with a useless interesting device dubbed the Galaxy Q, which will apparently be announced and shown off at IFA in Berlin this September. The Galaxy Q is expected to have a Super AMOLED + display measuring in at 5.3-inches (.3-inches more than the Streak) and if it’s not 1280×800, I will hit something. The translation from the original Korean article is sketchy, but it does mention the Galaxy Q have WCDMA and LTE antennas; whether that’s in the single device, or WCDMA in one and LTE in the other is unknown. Either way, we’re going to see some interesting stuff coming out of IFA.

I was looking at the Dell Streak for my next phone at one stage.I’ve never been a fan of virtual keyboards, but if I was going to go down that path – I’d want a bigger screen size like this to compensate.
I’m in the minority though, I know.

Well the ipad has been a very successful answer to a question no one was asking so why not this?

We never heard anything about Dell moving a heap of Streak units, which is what I based my thoughts on. 

It’s a very awkward size, so it’ll be interesting to see what people’s thoughts are when it’s unveiled.

I think that’s about the size of the Palm Pilot III — Wikipedia isn’t saying anything about the screen dimensions, but the whole unit is ~5.6″ diagonally — which was useful and not particularly awkward, but also wasn’t pretending to be a phone.

It’s a pretty decent size for an ereader, there are a whole bunch of them around with 5″ eink displays.

How useful it is on a wacky phone/tablet hybrid is an entirely different question.
