The World's Largest Android Smartphone has a 42-inch touchscreen, sports a working camera and can connect to the Internet.
The World's Largest Android Smartphone is for display purposes only, we're sad to say, and is only on display at select Best Buy locations (with Tech Crunch reporting on the one at San Carlos, CA).
The Largest Android Smartphone in The World passes all the processing to a real Samsung Nexus S.
Best Buy is the exclusive retail location of the Nexus S. The Android 2.3 flagship sells for $200 on a two-year T-Mobile deal or for $530 contract-free.
The new Android flagship gets a four-inch Super AMOLED display and has 16GB of storage built-in. Google and Samsung have patterned it closely after the Galaxy US but have stripped out the microSDHC slot while a gyroscope and NFC wireless hardware have been built-in.
The Guinness world record for the largest functioning mobile phone was set by a scaled up Samsung SCH-r450; it measures 4.57 x 3.42 x .74 m (15 x 11.2 x 2.5 ft), and was achieved by Cricket Communications and Samsung Mobile.
Guinness World Records also recognized the lightest touchscreen mobile phone: the modu-t, which weighs 55.1 g (1.94 oz).
