Samsung’s push of ‘Fonblet’ to replace ‘Phablet’ looks DOA

Now Samsung has come up with its own term for the devices. It's pushing the term “fonblet” which, like phablet, also implies smartphone/tablet but is already being met with derision.  

TechCrunch for one, had this to say: 

"Leaving aside that fonblet hits the ears with all the sonorous pleasure of a cat falling down the side of a skyscraper clad in chalkboard, it also combines the word “tablet” with the word “fone,” which as most will be aware, doesn’t actually exist."

Samsung wants to further distinguish the fonblet name by saying it's for larger smartphones that also include handwriting recognition.
