Phone and Tablet, not Phablet

If these are spec'd and priced for low-cost/price-sensitive markets then they are probably looking to fulfil two needs with one device, rather than just aiming at buyers that want a large phone. It would probably suit many people in "developed" markets, but perhaps that would cannibalise sales of other product lines.

Yup! It actually fills in the need for web browsing and email in low end markets. With one of these there is less need for an additional PC (or upgrading one) in a household, it is cheaper than a tablet, and its always connected via cellular.
