5 inches? 6 inches? 10 inches? 12 inches? How big do you need? Are price and features a consideration?
Of course, I’m talking about the display on your tablet.
We’ve been seeing tablets of all sizes and specs lately and the questions that have been coming to my mind are: how big of a display do you need? When can a tablet be considered a phone? When can a phone be considered a tablet?
For instance, Dell‘s mini 5 has a 5-inch display and runs an undisclosed version of Android. Camangi’s WebStation is a 7-inch Android tablet and the JooJoo has a 12.1-inch display. Then, of course, there’s iPad with a 9.7-inch display.
What’s the difference between an iPhone with a 3.5-inch display and an iPad? If you compare a Dell mini 5 and iPhone, is the mini 5 a big phone or a small tablet?
The lines are blurred and it will be some time before we understand consumers needs and find some semblance of standardization.
