A 10" smartphone/tablet hybrid?

1 0
Samsung is getting ready to unveil their new 10.1" tablet that is also a smartphone (the week of Feb 27th). The  new product is named Galaxy Note 10.  I'm guessing that you hold it in front of you and talk towards it as opposed to holding a 10" tablet to your ear ( which just might be a bit much).  But, I think it's something that I could go for.  Instead of owning a smartphone as well as a tablet, one could have both in one device.  However,  I can also see how it would be awkward in some situations and just plain inconvenient in others.  How about you?

It seems as if smartphones and tablets are converging and it will be interesting to see how this evolves over the next two or three years.

The sad part is that there is no real unveiling. This stuff has been for sale in the Gamer District for like 4 years. For christ sake they give iphones away for free to students and military in Japan because its a joke compared to the stuff they have.

Nope. Brand new. There is not yet a hybird smartphone/10" tablet available yet but I am very excited about seeing this one as I think this where the market is going.

i will like to see how you will look trying to make a phone call when you forget your bluetooth walking down the street with a 10 inch tablet to your ears. i think you can still make phone calls if you have a 3g ipad or any 3g tablet "there is an app for that".
