Returning to the smartphone market after a three-year absence, Hewlett-Packard announced its plan to market 6- and 7-inch “voice tablets” in India, beginning in February.
The “phablets”–combination phones and tablets–are designed to allow users to consolidate their mobile devices. Many commuters on long train rides in Asia and Europe, while expressing interest in tablets, did not desire to carry around both smartphones and tablets; hence, the device’s marketability.
