You are right Jay_bond,I feel the combination or having the features of a phone and Ipad in one device could be a good one though, I expect this device to sell more despite the size but like you rightly said, let's see what Samsung makes out of this
It not a bad idea at all for Samsung to have combined the features of an Iphone and Ipad in on device, this will really attract users that love to have"All-In-On" applications, and I think the use of bluetooth handfree may make the phone features more easier to take advantage of especially because of size of the device.
It is a very interesting new device. I like all the features it has. I like the stylus as well, much better for drawing or writing out notes. It looks to be a little big though to be carrying around as a phone, although if you have a purse or bag to keep it in, that wouldn't be a problem.
This sounds very interesting and a viable option for people who don't want to carry around both items. Though it seems like it might be pushing the upper limits of size when it comes to something to put up to your ear and talk on. It seems like many new smart phones are touting much larger screens, but overall reversing the market trend of old where "smaller was better". I'm sure Samsung will see how many people are willing to have a slightly larger phone for the benefits of a tablet.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
