Phablets have made a decent niche for themselves in the global smartphone market. A device that has a screen larger than a conventional smartphone but smaller than a 7 inch tablet is affectionately referred to as the phablet. Samsung has ruled this particular niche with its Galaxy Note devices, however there have been many contenders. Lenovo has been rumored to be working on the first ever Windows Phone phablet, the device in question is said to have a quadcore processor as well as a full HD 1080p display.
Not much is known about this device at this point in time. It is believed that the screen size will be between 4.7 to 5 inches. Finer details about internal specifications are not currently available. Obviously it is too soon to speculate as to when Lenovo will release this phablet, its moniker is yet to surface as well. There are other phablet contenders in the pipeline as well, BlackBerry is also said to be working on its A10, the 5 inch Z10 successor. Nokia has had success with its Lumia line of WP devices, there have been rumors of a Lumia phablet as well. The phablet situation is something to keep your eye on over the next couple of months.
