In the recent years, phablets have proven to be more than just a fad. According to a report from research firm IDC, in the second quarter of 2013, phablets have sold as much as tablets and laptops combined in the Asia-Pacific region. A total of 25.2 million phablets were shipped, compared with 12.6 million tablets, and 12.7 million portable PCs.
Currently, Samsung is in the lead with roughly 50 percent of the phablet market. Analysts expect it continue with the recent launch of Galaxy Note 3. Two months ago, it also unveiled Galaxy Mega with variants 6.3 and 5.8 inches screen."
