What’s a Phablet?
With the release of the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Note 4, the term phablet has been thrust back into the public realm. Wikipedia puts it well: A phablet is a class of mobile device designed to combine or straddle the functions of a smartphone and tablet. The word Phablet is a portmanteau of the words phone and tablet. There are two components of a phablet, the ability to make cellular calls and size. This photo from MCPR explains the size component:
Increasingly, more mobile users want to make calls and use a tablet without carrying two devices. In the next month Apple will release a new line of iPads, some think an iPad Mini with cellular calling capabilities will be released while others think the iPhone 6 Plus is an indication that’s not going to happen.
Samsung just announced the Samsung Note 4 and Nokia has a phablet coming out as well. The Galaxy and Note series of Samsung devices is well worth exploring.
