Forecast for smartphone/ tablet hybrid or “phablet” shipments worldwide in 2013 and 2017, by region (in million units)
With these figures, Phablet is called to become the third best-selling electronic device, after smartphones (of which 1,077 million will be sold this year) and tablets. Desktop computers close the list with 133 million units sold. And phablet market is growing every day. Next year Phablets are expected to sell more than tablets. By 2015 it is expected 318 million phablets sold Worldwide, compared to 233 million for tablets.
Technology companies have been, and continue, forward to the outlook ahead. If Samsung was the one that hit the family segment with the Galaxy Note, in just three years Sony, LG, Nokia and WOO have become key players. And now Apple comes to this strategic electronic market with the new iPhone 6 Plus. The main advantages of the phablet are:
1. They are more comfortable. With a phablet it’s possible to get all in one device, a real combination between smartphone and tablet.
2. Proper Size offers two technologies in one.
3. The battery lasts longer than a Smartphone.
4. Access to all applications that offers both a smartphone and a tablet.
5. Their cameras are generally better than those of the smartphone.

Although they seem complicated to make calls because of its size, being larger than a phone, the fact that statistically the use given to smartphones for calls is only 10%, whereas 90% is for internet browsing, emails, games, videos, etc., so we can say that Phablets are a good alternative solution to traditional traditional smartphones and tablets markets.
