phablet

noun; blending Blend between phone and tablet.
A mobile phone that has a screen large enough to make it a hybrid between a smartphone and a tablet. The screen is generally larger than 4.5" diagonally and is meant to be used with two hands, unlike most smartphones which are meant to be used with one hand. It is generally more powerful than a smartphone because of its larger size, as well as more feature packed, enabling the user to complete a more diverse set of tasks on the device. An example of a phablet is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which has a unique stylus input that is an example of an extra feature on this phablet.
 
"I never thought I would use a phablet."
Etymology : A blend between phone and tablet. Phone which is a shortening of telephone; apparatus for signaling by musical notes in 1835; from French telephone, tele meaning far and phone meaning sound; electrical communication device described in 1876. Tablet which is a slab or flat surface for an inscription from Old French tablete in 13th century. These two were combined for phablet.
