Are 4.0″ and smaller Android phones just for kids or do you still want them?

This morning, HTC and Verizon announced the new Droid Incredible 4G LTE. You can think of this as essentially a 4.0″ HTC One S with a qHD screen, removable battery, and some other Droid-branded tweaks.

Specs from the press release:

  • 4-inch super LCD qHD display
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, LED flash, BSI, f/2.2 and 28 mm lens
  • Front-facing camera for video chatting with friends and family
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm® Snapdragonâ„¢ S4 processor
  • Mobile Hotspot capable to share 4G LTE connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
  • Support for up to 32 GB microSDâ„¢ memory card
  • 1,700 mAh lithium ion removable battery

So this sounds like a decent device but many people aren’t going to like the small 4.0″ screen. So my question to you is this: Do you still care about 4.0″ screens? Is this too small? Or are these modern phones too much like a tablet and not enough like a phone?
