Phablets – love them or hate them, they are definitely here to stay. Samsung’s Galaxy Note was deemed to be ”too large” when it was first introduced to the world some time back, but who is laughing now? The Galaxy Note even has a sequel released, and more and more smartphone manufacturers have also jumped aboard the phablet bandwagon, too. Acer, the Taiwanese company that has failed to impress with their Android-powered smartphone collection to date, is glad to announce that they too, will be jumping aboard the phablet bandwagon this coming June at Computex.
Acer figured out that there is still a big enough market for new entrants in the phablet space, and will price their phablet collection slightly lower than what the market price dictates at this point in time. Jim Wong, Acer’s Corporate President, claimed that the upcoming Acer phablet will boast of “special features in terms of size, camera, and software”, so we intend to sit and wait this one out. Will it catch on? Only time will tell.
