Of all the tablet sizes, the 7 inch category has seen the most launches, but that does not mean companies aren’t experimenting with other sizes. A Japanese company Poketab has come up with a tablet that sports a 6 inch display. This is interesting, seeing as anything below the 7 inch size has so far been considered to be too small to be considered a proper tablet device. The Japanese company is keen to market its Poketab as a tablet device, however. This makes it a device that bridges the gap between what’s called a phablet and a tablet.
Spec wise, the Poketab does not break any new ground. The 6 inch display boasts of a rather drab 800 x 480 number of pixels. Behind it lies a ARM Cortex A8 chip rated at 1.2 GHz that works in conjunction with a 512 MB RAM and a 4 GB memory. There is also a microSD card slot to allow for more storage, and the tablet runs Android 4.0 ICS. Thankfully, the price matches the spec sheet; the Poketab costs just $90.
So for those who have been looking for something bigger than a ‘phablet‘ but smaller than a 7 inch tablet now have the Poketab to consider.
