Pocketnow Live, Ep. 14: Will the Line Between Smartphones, Phablets, and Tablets Disappear?
Smartphones, phablets, tablets. We all remember the days when smartphones had 2.3-inch screens; it all happened back in the day where QVGA was a big thing. Fast forward just five or six years and we’re seeing 5-6-inch phones that have Full HD resolution. As phones got bigger and bigger, an interesting thing happened to tablets: they got smaller and smaller, starting from 10-9-inches as the preferred form factor for many today became the 7-inch tablet. With less than an inch or so between the smallest tablet and the largest phone, will the line disappear and will these two, otherwise distinct products, blend and lose their identity?
That’s the subject we propose for today’s installment of the Pocketnow Live show. Of course, as usual, you can bring your own topic, tech-related or not, as we prepare for another weekend, but not before we spend some time together.
