Re: The purpose of tablet ?
@angelfuego I'm on your side with this one. Phablets are an awkward size and too big to serve the same purpose as a smartphone. Personally, I like my phone to fit in one hand and my iPhone 4 (prehistoric, I know) does the job just fine.

Tablet buying
This was the first Thanksgiving weekend where I heard people discuss the wisdom/lack of wisdom in buying cheap tablets at drugstores. The electronic kind of tablets.

Re: Phablets
I hate that term too -- always made me think "faux tablet" when I first heard others throwing it around.

Re: Phablets
Agree on the travel point. A lot easier to transport and lug around than a laptop.

Re: The purpose of tablet ?
I found myself in a similar situation when I purchased my iPad. I had it for a few months but still couldn't figure out why it's more useful than my laptop and my smartphone. It's a nice to have, not a need to have for me.
