It looks like Samsung is getting some smartphone assistance from on high, sort of.

One of the reasons Samsung has come out of nowhere to ambush Apple in the global smartphone wars is that Samsung was the first company to make phones with big screens.

Samsung, meanwhile, introduced a Galaxy SIII with a 4.8-inch screen and the Galaxy Note with a gigantic 5.5-inch screen. Lots of buyers loved the bigger screens. Including, it seems, American Airlines.
