How Small Should Our Gadgets Be?

My first complaint about the Apple iPhone is that it's bigger and heavier than my BlackBerry Pearl - the Pearl is 89 grams while the iPhone is a noticeably heavier 4.8 grams. Of course, browsing the internet is a more pleasurable experience on the iPhone because of its 3.5-inch wide screen...and still, I complain about its weight and size. If you look at gadgets released in the last couple of years, most of them have had the "nano" effect - going from the first (jumbo) iPod to the teeny tiny nano or even the shuffle. Do you think makers compromise on function in order to maker smaller gadgets and do you really care about size? Most importantly, how far are we going to take this mini craze?
