I hope more guys can have their own opinion based on like that.

So that they can distinguish between true innovation and technology and blinded loyalty on their every matters.

I used to love Apple and now I love Samsung.
Hear me out

And I am still ready to go back to Apple or move to Nokia, HTC etc "if they made A good Device without hegitation based on my unbiased perspective.

This can be applied for everything.

If you are blinded by what they did long time ago,
you can't see their recent jobs properly which I can see very clearly because I am not brain-washed and blinded.

Now I can see this device looks rather tablet than phone based on my opinion that Galaxy note2 size is on very edge to be a phone.
Probably with less bezel, it still could be bigger a bit.
But I don't see this device has extreamly thin bezel..

They said the same things about America in the 40s, Japanese stuff in the 60s/70s and 80s. The problem is that you are too ignorant beyond belief to realise that China does make good original innovations which arent knock offs and in someway, are ahead. You are too consumed with what the senate or the cold war mentality of the media and tech blogs tell you, it isnt the 70s anymore bub. This is now 2012 nearing 2013, times change so deal with it.

2) I have no problem holding a tab 7.7 1 handed for a few hours
3) a lot if people would prefer 1 device like this than 2... The note 2 fits easily in all my clothes....I'm sure this will.
4) all manufacturers (except apple) are heading to big devices.....5t inches plus..people don't even recognise that I have a note 2....Android gives choices :-)

A few things....This device will only be a few mm wider than the original note so it will be pocketable but not in all clothes.....As you can see in the photo it can easily be held with 1 hand.... Phones now days are used less for talking and more fore social media, messaging, internet, videos, games, reading books, and etcetc....Plus if you don't want to hold it too your ear you can use a Bluetooth earpiece,

I have a note 2 and absolutely love it as an all in one device.....I am really hoping the note 3 goes to 6 inches with narrower bezels

This device isn't for everyone but for some people it's perfect....Why do you need to knock other people's opinions?

Just like iPhone started the Age of Touch Screen Smartphones. Got that? We dont consider anything before galaxy note as a "phablet". And we dont consider anything before iPhone as a touch screen "smartphone".
And we are not inrested in hearing lame history.

Only that it swells. 6.1in is sure to be on the modest pocket size limit. 361ppi and lot of high specs. Whao, I hope all other manufacturers will start responding to our wish - phablet!!

wow my dream cum true. I so want this device, its perfect size for a phablet. I had a Note and got rid of it. I'm currently using the Galaxy Tab 7.7 as my main phone and always wanted a phone slash tab to be 6 inches with a 1080p display, and finally someone had the guts to make one, thank god woohoo. I'm so happy. When this comes out i'll sell my tab 7.7
