Editors Note: We know this is not an Android tablet, specifically, but with a 6.8-inch display, it’s large enough to be a tablet.

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

Apple’s iPhone 6 said to sport a big-screen phablet design

Samsung pioneered the so-called 'phablet' design (smartphone/tablet hybrid) with its line of Galaxy Note devices.

The Japanese magazine Mac Fan summarized a report by Macotakara that claims Apple's next-generation iPhone might include a 1,920-by-1,080-pixel 5-inch display packing in 440 pixels per inch.

BlackBerry looks set to push ahead with Z30 phablet plans

The Z30 smartphone is rumored to have a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with (1,280 x 720 resolution) which is big enough to be considered one of the new generation of over-sized smartphone/kind-of-a-tablet devices that are often referred to as a phablet.
