Phablet

Definition - What does Phablet mean?

A phablet is a device that combines smartphone and tablet features and is generally characterized by a stylus/pen input and classic phone features and capabilities, like phone calling over a 3G network.

Techopedia explains Phablet

The phablet term originated on popular tech blogs like Engadget and TechCrunch. Phablets vary in size and appearance but are generally smaller than standard seven- to 10-inch tablets, with an ideal size of approximately five inches. Thus, the size of a phablet is between that of a tablet and smartphone.

In October 2011, LG Electronics Inc. filed a U.S. federal trademark registration for the term phablet.
