There is a new name for a small hand held touchscreen device. It has been christened the Phablet and one of the specifications is that it needs to have a screen that is greater than 5 inches and not more than 7 inches. It is something of a cross between a smartphone and a small tablet with the option to use a stylus thrown in.
It is larger in size than a smartphone and much smaller than a regular tablet. The term has been coined from the two words phone and tablet, which explains a lot about this new entrant. HTC has come out with a sleek Phablet that has a glossy finish and a stylish look. Though the term Phablet is generic, the South Korean giant in electronics, LG tried to apply for a trademark and make the name their own. However, it is still kept in application stage and the term is used by all manufacturers for reference as in the case of smartphone.
Though the Taiwanese company, the makers of HTC has not come out with any official announcements about the debut of this new product, there is some information that is available on the web. The device has been christened with a code name DLX, probably meaning deluxe. There are some sneak peek pictures of the device that are available on the Internet that have fleeting images of it in black and red.
It will probably work on Android Jelly Bean 4.1 and a quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro Central Processing Unit. It is believed that it will have a density of 480 pixels per inch and also boasts an HD screen that is 5 inches in size and with a resolution of 1920 X 1080. The impressive random access memory of 1.5 Gigabytes and a storage capacity of 16 Gigabytes complement the much talked about device. It sports a camera of 12 megapixels in the rear and another of 2 megapixels in the front. It also has a non-removable battery that can go on for days on a single charge.
Set to compete with heavyweights like Samsung Galaxy Note and Dell Streak this new entrant is creating waves in the market even before making a formal entry. It is expected to come to Verizon upon release just before the commencement of the holiday season. It could go under the name Droid Incredible X or DIX or DLX which could mean deluxe or whatever. Though this is pretty much uncharted territory, there are a couple of players already who are well established. Hence, it remains to be seen as to how the market will react to another entrant at this stage. However, the plus point for HTC is that they are well entrenched in the mobile phone market and has a brand name that is well established.
Though there is no information about the likely price structure, the pricing will be competitive and put the heat on the existing players in the market. The competition will turn out to be beneficial for the ultimate customers who will get the benefit.
