    Yeah bringing out the brick and typing not a good look,not gonna be as quick as a phone to type and easy robbing target in some places.The answer lies in whoever creates a fusion of handsfree and earphone that has voice command capabilitys over text/call.

    There's something to phablets and over time it could become the standard screen size due to the gaps it feels epescially among young consumers.

    Yes! I would love that. The Galaxy Note is a great size. Bring it on!

    The only phone I want is a BB10 Torch slider, 3.5-4" screen. Pen input would be very welcomed.

    It has to be narrow enough that I can hold the phone in the palm of my right hand and use the pen/stylus with my left so I can support my left hand with my right fingers.

    What is the ultimate BlackBerry? The ultimate BlackBerry would be a device with the screen size of the Z10 along with the physical keyboard of the Q10 and the battery life of the Z30. This, would be the ultimate BlackBerry. Why they haven't built it yet remains one of the greatest mystery of BlackBerry.

    Nope. I like having a small device that I can have in my pocket or in my holster(BB Phone). And a bigger device that I can throw in my bag and take it out to read websites, news, books, watch videos, play games. I actually find the Playbook to have a slightly too small of a screen. If they made the bezel about 1cm less on each side and increased the screen size by 1cm on each side, it would be great. (Dare I say, similar to the iPad Mini, except obviously without the stupid home button).

    So no, I don't see a use of a tablet sized phone or a phone sized tablet.

    Well I have played with the Note at ATT and picked one up at Best Buy and put it to my ear. I'm 5'1-5'2...soo having That big a device to my ear would be ludicrous! I don't think my hands would be able to reach the top of the screen if I tried it one handed.
    I wait for the future...to COME back to BlackBerry!

    i think that brings up a good point. For shorter, smaller people the note is huge but honestly if you are a bigger person then its not that big. Look at the new note 2 commercial with Lebron James, it doesnt look near as huge

    Considering that I used a Nokia N770 for traveling purposes and it had handwriting recognition, albeit not super fast, I'd be in support of a phablet. The N770 has a 4.1" screen, so a stylus for BB London would be fine too. The N770 was resistive technology though, so perhaps that worked well for stylus input.

    A Note sized device would be nice. I used a Note for about a month while in Korea. It's a bit large to carry around comfortably, but not a big deal if you wear a jacket. I wouldn't trade my iPhone for a Note, but I can see how some people would prefer it. It seems Samsung has already sold over 5M of the Note 2's, so there's definitely a market for it.

    I already do that at work using a bridged PlayBook - phone in holster, PlayBook on desk managing all phone activities (even remotely silences calls I don't want to take) along with media and browsing. I would rather have the flexibility of this combo, but there's no question that a market exists for a well-made phablet - just look at the old HP handhelds from 1994 still selling for above retail, mostly because they offer the ability to run DOS programs and run on household batteries. I say go for it once BB10 takes off and the apps are there to support the tablet side - maybe an upgrade path for Q1 2014.

    Actually, if my PlayBook had full phone capabilities, I'd be happy. It would get me back to carrying just one device. Sure, I'd need to use a headset for calls (70's boombox anyone?), but I already do that so I can take notes during a call. A 7" phablet would be great.

    There was a thread a while ago talking about the Note vs PB I think. Anyway the Arista seems to be the BB equivalent but to be honest I'm more interested in how it performs then getting one. The PB is good enough for giving me that larger screen. I think the 4" range is perfect for a phone (I still love the Pearl its just so small and will fit in any pocket) but yeah a phablet is kinda a must to offer choice.

    I fear Rim might be alienating their core hardcore users by going after the big screen devices. I wouldn't use anything bigger then a 9900 and even that is slightly too big.

    As long as RIM keeps putting out physical keyboard alongside larger devices the Aristo, they'd be keeping thier core users as well as catering to other segments of the market that do prefer larger devices.

    Not too long ago, I said that I couldn't see myself getting anything bigger than a device with a 4.3" display. That opinion was based on bulky HTC devices. The SGS3 was easy to get used to, and a lot had to do with its sleek form factor. It's thinner than the HTC devices I was used to, and ergonomically easier to hold and I'm a tiny woman with tiny hands! I'm looking forward to holding both the London and Aristo to see what they're like.

    I can say that I wanted the Note when it first appeared on scene. I think it is the only "phablet" to really have nailed the idea. (I mean c'mon, the LG Intuition is just a joke!) But at the same time, I'd not be interested in seeing a similar endeavor by RIM. There would be no reason for it. Leave Samsung to their baby. Give me a digitizer for my PlayBook, maybe.
