K900 looks good, but looks to be just for Chinese consumption

Lenovo is looking to make some waves in the smartphone market with its new K900 "superphone". Most were wowed by Sony's impressive Xperia Z with its 5" 1080p display, but Lenovo's K900 is sporting a 5.5" display while still retaining 1080p resolution (this also means that it will have a slightly lower pixel density than the Xperia Z).
Under the screen, the K900 is powered by Intel's Clover Trail+ platform. To go with that firepower, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage are also in the cards. More impressively, Lenovo has managed to toss in a 13MP camera with a F1.8 focal length lens, dual-LED flash, and the requisite front-facing camera for video chat.
The device itself is 6.9mm thick and weighs just 5.7 ounces. The body of the phone is a mixture of polycarbonate and stainless steel that gives it a nice, business-like exterior.
“With the K900, our team has broken down the key functions of the smartphone and redesigned them from the ground up,” said Liu Jun, president, Mobile Internet Digital Home, and senior vice president, Lenovo. “Rather than focus on specifications that look good on a datasheet, we’ve zeroed in on what consumers want and proved that for smartphone users, top performance doesn’t require a thick profile. The K900 is a game-changer that looks as good as it performs.”
Unfortunately, it looks as though Lenovo is targeting the K900 primarily at the Chinese market and a few other select markets. There's no word on when (or if) it will be available to a U.S. audience. At least Sony has enough confidence to market its “superphone” in the U.S.

Exactly... You dont see alot of people going from a large screen back to small. You DO see a ton of people and the entire industry going from small to large and the one common thing that you hears is "I love this big screen". Not "golly, I cant use this big thing". The people that complain about big screens are the ones stuck with small ones... you know who says "Size doesn't matter" ? The guy with a small one [and his woman trying to be supportive] ;)

I think also a limiting factor of these is how does it fit in your pocket? At some point just buy a Surface or Ipad...

I like something that I can carry around in the front pocket of my blue jeans without having a huge bulge...

One problem with at logic; No phone functions. The Galxay Note has a big screen, high resolution AND all the phone functions. And the moment one of those companies releases a big screen phone with a physical qwerty keyboard, I'm in like Flynn!

Yeah I bought a galaxy note 2. Made sure it would fit in my pockets (did so easily), I could hold it on one hand easily enough so I figured why not. After a few days there is no going back. My wife got a gs3 and hasn't once complained it's too big or any such nonsense.

I jokingly picked up her kindle to compare it to the note 2 and realized I could one hand the kindle... so maybe one day :-)

Yup... My wife is 5 foot zero inches tall with really small hands and has no problem with my GS3. People that say they cant deal with it are just making excuses or simply havent tried.
