Sell my mobile: Phablet shipments to surpass 208m in 2015
Research suggests that global sales of phablets will surpass 208 million annually by 2015, such is the growing popularity of the devices.
Phablets are a hybrid device that is larger than a smartphone but smaller than a tablet such as the Samsung Galaxy Note, which is regarded as the pioneer of the market.
Despite slow uptake of the mobile phones in 2011, the market for phablets is getting bigger and bigger, especially with so many firms keen on introducing one of their own handsets.
Senior analyst at ABI Research Joshua Flood said one of the key drivers in the popularity of phablets is the amount of time that people use their smartphones for web browsing and reading.
"The larger screen sizes make a significant difference to the user's experience when compared to conventional-sized touchscreens between 3.5 to four inches," he said, before adding people enjoy the two in one proposition that phablets bring.
