Samsung phablets will be called Mega

Rumors have been going around that Samsung is getting ready to launch a couple of new devices that would fall into the “phablet” category.

Reports are now indicating that Samsung has changed the name of those devices, calling them the Galaxy Mega line. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is code-named GT-I9152. So far, rumors indicate that this device will be an Android gadget with a screen measuring – wait for it -- 5.8-inches.

5.8-inches is certainly a big screen for a smartphone, but the other device Samsung reportedly has up its sleeve is even larger. The second device is called the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and carries the codename GT-I9200. This particular device was previously been rumored to be called the Galaxy Note III.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is expected to be offered in white somewhere around the end of May. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 will reportedly come in black and white colors around the middle of June.

A smartphone needs to fit in my pocket. This one won't.

This is ridiculous. This is what people were saying when the first Note was launched. Guess what? They were all wrong. The Note phablet concept is a huge success, even the S-Pen which was laughed at, is now appreciated.

@Samsung... If I wanted a tablet, I would buy a tablet. Not a smartphone.


You seriously see no merit in combining the two devices? Let me put it another way, how is a phablet MORE cumbersome than carrying around a phone AND a tablet around at all times?

Not to mention the savings on data plans if you have a smartphone and a 3g/4g tablet as well. I think that's crazy, but a lot of people do that.
