A Device -- thoughts?

Hey everyone! A while back, I posted a topic that was similar to the one I'm postin right now. Even though they are similar, they are highly different. Basically, my last topic was showing off a few different devices I designed. In fact, you might even remember it. I believe I called it "Summer turned obsession" or something along those lines. I had about 10 devices I was showing in that post. They were: "Atomos Planet", "Atomos Star", "Atomos Nebula", "Atomos Galaxy", "Atomos Universe", "Atomos Rock Q", "Atomos Pebble Q", and Atomos tablets "7" through "12". Some of these tablet are no longer in existence, just to point out. Anyways, to the point of this topic. I'm going to attempt to show off and describe one of my latest devices, and I want to know If anyone thinks it could ever feasibly sell, or if what you can tell from the pictures, description, and specs is overkill.

So, I think I'm going to start with the name and try to describe the device. I decided to name the device "Atomos Curve L", and for good reason if you continue to read this. When I decided to design this device, I felt... inspired, by the Galaxy Nexus. When I say inspired, I'm talking about the curve of the whole phone. So, I decided to design it with a curve. And, in the process, I felt I should try to push the unspoken "accepted" limits of the phablet range, which I will get into later. So, as you might be able to tell so far, this device is curved, and the reference to the limits of the phablet range likely means something about the screen. If you connected the dots, you are right. Congratulations!

Hold your horses though, I'm going to save the "monstrous" cherry for almost last. I'm so not very terribly sorry. So, I feel now would be a worthy time to get into the specs of the device. Here ya go.

Cornea I Display

1513x2690 Octile AMOLED 9:16 (449PPI)

32, 64, 128, or 256GB
Expandable Memory up to 64GB x 2
Nano SIM
Quad Core Sonyxe Processor
9MP Rear Facing Camera
2.1MP Front Facing Camera

Dimensions = 163.2 x 87.61 x 7.4* mm

*At thickest point (bottom), measurement is 7.4mm.. At thinnest point, measurement is 6.9mm.

Now for some greater details on a few things. To start, what in the world is a "Cornea I Display"? Well, to answer your wonderful question, a "Cornea I Display" is the name/branding I have come up with for the use in my eventual smart phones and phablets that murder Apple's bogus Retina marketing term. There are a few different classes of Cornea. Cornea I for use in smartphones and phablets. Cornea II for use in Tablets and ultra books. Cornea III for use in Gaming laptops. Cornea IV for use in Regular laptops. Cornea V for use in All-in-ones and My Magnus computer displays. And last is Cornea VI, for TV's. The basic principles behind all of these displays is that the resolutions need to be high enough that you can't see individual pixels. The problem is that as the size of your display increases, so does the range of viewing distances. The way I seek to solve this large range of viewing distances that could be a problem is to increase the required pixel density for each product line. By doing so, you almost guarantee that pixels will remain indistinguisable in the viewing distance range. Now, onto the next oddity.

What the hell is an "Octile AMOLED" display? Does that have any relation to the homicide causing Pentile Matrix? Calm down, calm down. Here.

So, to describe this weird, possibly suicide causing picture to subpixel purists, or whatever they are called, will take about a paragraph give or take. Here goes. So, basically, this thing has a total of 8 sub-pixels. 1 large blue. 2 reds. 2 greens. And 3 whites (2 small, one slightly larger). So, there are a few principles and ideas behind this display that theoretically make it possibly better than the normal RGB stripe. First of all, the way the pixel is designed is based on biomicry of the human eye. The human eye has fewer cones that pick up blue than it does cones that pick up green and red. Hence the reason for the large blue sub-pixel. Additionally, AMOLED screens, in the past, are quite well known for their strong dislike of whites. So, my solution is the wihte sub-pixels. They would not only serve to increase the energy efficiency of the diplay when displaying white, but it would also make the picture and display brighter, which would like solve another one of AMOLED's big problems. So, that is more or less the complete story behind the display and its strange technology.

Next on the chopping block is the Processor. You may be wondering what the F*** is a "Sonyxe" processor? Never heard of it. That is probably because it doesn't yet exist. It can be pronounced Sonikes or Sonics. Basically, to put it as simply as it actually is, it is just the likely processor name of my eventual company. That is all.

Now, for some sexy pictures. I'm just dodging the spec most of you are waiting for. The screen. You better not have gotten impatient and decided to do the Pythagorean theorem to figure it out!

Now, to hold my "promise", the screen. Drum role please! *shouts* Brace for a huge impact! Aaannnnnnddddddddd the size of the display is... 6.875". When I said I wanted to push the limits of the phablet range, I was not kidding. Basically, a phablet is any device that has a screen that is equal to or greater than 5", but less than 7". The end result when you decide to push it to its limits, thinking that no one will have the balls to push it this far, is a display that is 1/8" shy of 7". So, this thing is barely a phone. But it is very sleek. So sleek, infact, that as a whole, it is smaller than a PSP, a device for which is the closest competition I can find to the size of this device. The width of the phone, astonishingly, is actually thinner than that of the horrendous LG Intuition. And next is a bit more about the design.

In designing a phone that has what is likely the largest screen on a smartphone that anyone would even consider buying, I had to ensure that the way you held it is as close to perfect as it can get. this included making sure its width was less than the LG Intuition. So, that meant designing a bezel around the screen that is almost none existent. The bezel around the whole display unit, except for the top which has the FF Camera, proximity sensors, etc., is 1mm thin. 1mm! The curve of the device dips in a total of 2mm (ie, if you were to take a ruler, find the center from top to bottom, and then measure from the located center to the devices edge, and you would get a total of 2mm). And that is enough of my crazy specs. Oh wait, it is thinner than the iPhone 5. Forgot about that...

Finally, I have a few questions (I think). First, do you like the design of these devices? Secondly, would you ever consider purchasing a device with a screen this large. Third, do you feel that the screen is pretty amazing or is it overkill? Four, do you think that this device could prove popular enough to make it worthwhile, or do you think that it is just far to large to catch on? And I think that is my last question. If you can think of any questions that I should also ask, feel free to tell me. I'm very tired. And going to bed once I finish typing this.
