Default A Dell Mini5 Demo. Quick and Casual.

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/28/dell-mini-5-tablet-prototype-shows-up-as-m01m-in-shenzhen-blac/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/28/...-shenzhen-blac/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Hot on the heels of us thinking maybe the Dell Streak / Mini 5 was possibly due for a name change to the "M01M," a roving heckler from TechCrunch managed to catch the man himself, Michael Dell, on the street and get a quick demonstration of the thing -- which he with no uncertain terms referred to as the "Mini 5.""</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1264793670.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Have you heard?&nbsp; Tablets are in!&nbsp; And Dell is not one to be left out in the cold, business wise at least.&nbsp; The quick demo of the Mini 5 does not give much information, but it looks like a nice portable device.&nbsp; Much more portable, and thus, more usable than larger tablets.&nbsp; Mini 5 information has been popping up all over the net including a price of $1,095 if a "copy" price is any gauge.&nbsp; I do find it interesting that the small tablets coming out are using the whole "tablet" name, instead of the age old PDA which really are what the smaller tablets are.&nbsp; Sure, they have 3G for persistent connectivity, but it is only recently that prices for wireless connectivity have gone down.&nbsp; The Mini 5 definitely looks more usable than their old Axim line though.</p><p><em></em></p>

We must have different ideas about usability. Why does it being smaller make it more usable ? In my mind the smaller you shrink the screen the less usable it becomes though as you point out it does make it easier to carry around.
