I hate large LCD screens!

What I mean is, I hate it when camera manufacturers make the glass of their LCD screens larger than the actual screen area we see. Olympus and Panasonic seem to be the worst offenders in this area.

Is there some need to have a large black border around the screen? If not, removing the black area and making the non-usable part of the screen smaller would free up some room on the back of the camera for larger, or more, controls.

Do the camera manufacturers think that they will sell more cameras if they make the screens "appear" to be bigger?

Who are the camera manufacturers trying to fool?
