The seven inch large phone tablet thing is becoming quite popular. Not with actual consumers but with manufacturers, we now have the Asus FonePad, the Galaxy Note 8.0 and now the Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue.

The Mediapad 7 will need to be cheap though if it is to compete with the bargain priced sub £200 Asus FonePad, especially as the FonePad is available in the high street.

 “The MediaPad 7 Vogue comes in black and white and will be available in China this month, with other markets to follow”

So we shall see, how much it costs hopefully in the next few weeks. One last thing though people, who in the real world would ever use one of these as phone? Please let me know if you would use it as your main device, not you second device. Maybe models like this one, who’s obviously been paid to smile.

    I use an Asus Fonepad as my main phone. On the rare occasions I talk on it I have no problem putting it to my ear. People do look but that’s their problem.

    I remember when I first got my Dell Streak with its 5 inch screen 3 years ago. Sites like CSP expressed surprise about such a big phone and how silly people would look. Then the Note came along and the rest is history. Imagine if Apple brought out an iPad-mini with phone capabilties. Overnight the ‘look’ of big phone would be mainstream.

    With increasing use of skype, lync, viber, facetime etc I believe standard voice calling and texting will be dead within 5 years. Eventually all tablets will be big phones in the same way as all smartphones are essentially mini-tablets.
