Samsung Galaxy Q details leaked: Phone or tablet?

Not content to rule the smartphone world with the Samsung Galaxy S II, the South Korean company is lining up a new phone – the Samsung Galaxy Q – and it could be bigger and better than ever before.
The biggest smartphone ever released by Samsung (and anybody else), the Galaxy Q looks set to get a huge 5.3-inch touchscreen. It’s comfortably larger than the current crop of high-end smartphones, and should be perfect for media duties.

Whether we’d want to cram it in our pocket on a daily basis is another thing, but the Galaxy Q definitely sounds interesting. It’s nearest rival is the Dell Streak – which is a cross between a smartphone and a tablet.

The Galaxy Q straddles the line between the 4.5-inch Samsung Infuse and the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet, but for most users it’ll be too large as a smartphone.

We’d like to hear what you think though – is 5.3 inches big enough for a tablet? Or does the Samsung Q fall between two worlds, proving too large for a smartphone, and too compact for a tablet? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.
