The Phablet

What is bigger than a smart phone, smaller than a tablet, and does the work of both?  It is the "phablet."  The first combination oversized smartphone/undersized tablet was the Samsung Galaxy Note.  Most pundits (myself included) laughed off this new profile as too much smartphone and too little tablet.  The pundits were wrong.  The Galaxy Note sold like hotcakes. 5,000,0000 units sold in half a year.

In a report published by ABI Research:  “One of the chief drivers for phablets is the amount of time people use their smartphones for web browsing, reading articles and newspapers on the go, or simply navigating their journeys . . . The larger screen sizes make a significant difference to the user’s experience when compared to conventional-sized touchscreens between 3.5 to 4 inches.”

Other manufacturers are getting on board.  LG has introduced its Optimus Vu.  Other brands are sure to follow.

It would appear that bigger is getting better in the mobile device world.
