7-inch Coolpad phablet could launch at Mediatek’s MT6592 launch event!

There was a time in tech when we first had to wait for a component manufacturer to launch the hardware then a few months to see the phones with the goods! This week Chinese phone companies will skip the wait starting with Coolpad!

Gizchina News of the week

China’s Coolpad have teamed up with Taiwan’s Mediatek and will launch an MT6592 8-core phone at Mediatek’s press event. What is more interesting is that this phablet may exceed 6-inches and could be a 7-inch smartphone!

Further details will have to wait until the 20th November where this monster device will eventually make an appearance!

    Calling a 7-inch tablet a phablet is a little too much…

      +1. This is not a phablet, it’s a tablet with telephony features and and a smartphone design.

        Would you feel better if this device was referred to as tabletone?

        Like it or not, this is a phone. Guess what it is also a computer! In a year or so Ubuntu and probably others will demonstrate how phones can replace you laptop and/or your desktop…

          So Galaxy Note 8.0 is a phone? Obiviously

          Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5100 is a phone too, right?

          +1 Ubuntu will show a new world to many here.

          You can name devices as you wish. Out there some people still think “phone” is Nokia 1100 and similar form factor devices. Whatever, times are getting seriously fun! 🙂

      +1. Exactly … the fact that it has a smartphone hardware and design doesnt exactly make it a phone. It is still a tablet.
