I agree with you on using a tablet, but I still need connectivity and my cellphone needs to be tether capable, so no flip phone.

My Galaxy Tab2 7" gets lots of use. My phone is hardly ever used except to receive a call or a message. I could bet by with a basic flip phone and a small tablet 98% of the time now.

One device to rule them all....

Ain't gonna happen. The issue here is what compromises make the most sense, and that's a value judgement. There won't be a single device or even pair of devices that suit eveyone. A phablet won't suit everyone, but if you want to carry a dinner plate on your belt and hold it up to your head to make a call, that's OK. It likely won't carve out a huge market share, but I'd LOVE to have 3% of the smartphone market.

I love my Samsung Galaxy Note (original, not Note II or otherwise) But I still find my self returning to my Galaxy Tab 7 II to perform tasks that require more screen realestate... I would love to have a phone that can replace both my phone *AND* my tablet!
