Decades ago, technology innovators were fixated on the miniaturization of devices. Today, phone makers are on the race to ace the reversal of this trend—by producing the world’s best "phablet."
A phone-tablet, or a phablet, is the latest craze, for both the phone making companies as well as the consumer market. To date, China Huawei’s Ascend Mate, of a 6.1-inch screen, just slightly smaller than a Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet, is the one to beat. The integration of the phone and the computer in a phablet is said to be the best of both worlds where the device is not seen as a new bulky phone, but a sleek delicate computer on-the-go.
