Huawei introduces a 6.1" smartphone (this is bigger than Kindle Paperwhite)

http://www.tmonews.com/2013/01/huawe...bile-4g-ready/

Quote:
6.1-inch 1280 x 720 361ppi display (0.73 screen-to-frame ratio, higher than the 0.69 screen-to-frame ratio of the Galaxy Note II)
HiSilicon K3V3 1.5GHz quad-core processor
2GB RAM
13MP camera
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
4050 mAh battery (22 hours and 13 minutes talk time. 14 hours of web browsing. 10 hours of video playback)
Water-resistant/Dust-resistant
Kindle Paperwhite has a 6" screen.
It won't be just tablets that will kill e-reader, but phablets too.

Where did you get the PPI quote? From the first article link:

Quote:
As far as screens go, this one is okay, but not great. It offers 720p resolution, but at 6.1 inches, you're only getting 241 pixels per inch. It's bright and vibrant, and it doesn't look bad, but it's no match for the 1080p displays we're starting to see, like on Huawei's own Ascend D.

Yes, the PPI is wrong, at 1280x720, a smaller S3 is about 300 and the Note II about 264, so it's a misquote.

People are buying phablets because they don't want to carry 2 devices, a phablet replaces both a phone and a tablet, so one device to rule them all. And with accessories starting to pop-up that make use simpler (like smartwatches that show you messages, missed calls and such), functionality is even better.

If it is going to be that large, might as well haul around a Nexus 7.

I hear you about the 2 devices thing, but when you consider the cost of having a data plan on your cell phone, other possibilities begin to be attractive.

I am going with a Droid I as a WiFi mini-tab in a belt pouch, and a simple small feature phone in my pocket. A simple phone on my wrist (watch) replacing the one in my pocket might work also.

I don't like two pouches or holsters on my belt. It becomes bothersome when you are strapping in sometimes. Always getting hung up. Another possibility I have used is a vest with camera and cargo pockets.

True in my case. Since I switched from a flip phone to a Samsung Galaxy 3, the e-reader and mp3 player never leave home.

I'd love to have a phablet some day, but I don't want to replace my e-ink reader untill I could read on that phablet comfortable on a sunny beach. Untill that day comes, it would only replace my tablet and smartphone.

Pair one of these with a good bluetooth head set and you would have it made. Actually what I would love to see is a Nexus 7 with a phone in it. Again pair it with a bluetooth head set (like the LG HBS-700) and no need to put it up to your ear.
