"It is a question of personal taste," Milanesi said. "Some users just do not like larger screens."
Milanesi believes the huge demand for Apple's iPhone cannot be attributed solely to its utility as a smartphone.

Apple's iPad Heading Overseas
Apple will have ample opportunity to test the overseas appeal of its latest 10.1-inch iPad model. Later this month, the third-generation new iPad launches in more than 20 overseas markets.
On Friday, Apple's new iPad will become available for sale in the Asian markets of South Korea, Malaysia and Brunei and also take its inaugural bows in selected markets in Europe and the Caribbean as well as in Latin American countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Apple's global iPad rollout will continue on April 27, when the new iPad hits the store shelves in Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand. Moreover, Apple said it would continue to offer its prior iPad 2 model "at a more affordable price starting at just $399."
