    True but you never know. In our case, they switched from GOOD email to a more robust system, and at that point they decided not to bother updating to Android support. You'd think Android would swing some clout given the installed base worldwide, but apparently out of 30k BYOD users, only 3% were on Android...

    Did they switch from Good to BlackBerry Work? That's what I've got.

    mitlov, that's possible (about a 6.3-inch X Pro or whatever). Still, 0.5-inches is a pretty minor difference. I'd love to see the cannibalization rates for Samsung, since they sell so many flavors of essentially the same thing.

    Lelisa, good points on the features you lose on the X in landscape. But as for bezels, I know that here people seem to only use 'bezel' for the top and bottom mattes, but that's not really correct. A bezel is the surrounding margins.

    Honestly, the side portion is so tiny as to be virtually invisible, at least in my experience. Granted, I always buy the black model of iPhone and use shelves on black background wallpaper and when my iPhones are OFF they look like personal-sized monoliths. :vbwink: When turned ON and viewing any app or memo, the side edges are completely unintrusive because they're so tiny. :vbsmile:

    I'll bet it rivals the cannibalism that Apple experiences in the "thin and premium laptop between twelve and thirteen inches" market ;-)

    I don't get that at all. I was harshing on Samsung and their internal competition. Apple obviously doesn't compete with itself as the products I think you mean don't really compete.

    I like the black ones too Lelisa, but I can see the side channels, rails or whatever. The X's are indeed even narrower.
