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.

I won't be. And there will also be even more millions of others who won't see a point to it either.

So what? Who cares, that's not a logical argument. Because millions of people WILL see a point. So what then?

But you could get a 4G/LTE on a 7" tablet for quite a while now and those sell just fine.

Really? Please show me an Android based LTE tablet that's outsold the Note's.

And the Notes you can still stuff in a (big) pocket. Can't you? Just wear cargo pants rather than tight jeans.

I'm not saying that they won't sell. Of course they will. Some people will buy anything. There was once a woman who made a huge bankroll selling jewelery made out of bird shit.

I just can't see the place for them with Notes on one side and Samsung's own LTE Galaxy Tabs on the other.
