Sony is making its own phablet?

Looks like everyone is making a phablet. Time to get bigger pockets!


Digi-wo has posted an image of what appears to be the front of a Sony device. More precisely, it just might be the working model of Sony’s own phablet, a 6.44-inch beast with 1080p resolution.

Details on this device is scarce, but Sony might have something planned for the Mobile World Congress next month. The company is on a roll recently, announcing the very tempting Xperia Z 5-inch smartphone, and then following up with a sleek 10.1 tablet called the Tablet Z (the naming conventions are getting out of hand!).

Phablet is an interesting market that has yet to be explored successfully. Samsung’s Galaxy Note has been the only device that has received any traction, but of course the question always lingers – when is big too big?
