At the beginning you have to ask yourself whether you really know what it is phablet, or the Polish fablet? This version also found in Wikipedia . And you know? If not, do not worry, because it's really hard to define, but …

Phablet … What's this?

It took a certain definition that specifies the type of electronic device phablet. According to me (Wikipedia agrees with me) is the equipment with touch screen with a diagonal of not less than 5 inches, but not more than 7 inches. Mostly it is a 6-inch screen – many phabletów oscillates close to this value. I've been here brings me to the first question – what phablety? Their dimension to virtually eliminate them from the point of view of transport in pockets in pants. They are suitable only to a backpack, briefcase or another.

Is apart from the screen with a diagonal of more than smartphone phablet has larger possibility of fun? And this is the third question. And if the answer? Well, yes and no. Functionality to a large extent it depends on the choice of operating platform. Frequently in this matter lies the biggest problem. Samsung, a pioneer phabletów, in its series of Galaxy Note has decided to Google Android and I must admit that the Korean manufacturer is a great work out.
