Is a Phablet App in Your Future?

As smart phone screens get bigger with each generation of phones and as tablets are getting smaller with each generation, we are seeing the growth of a middle area product that tends to occupy the sweet spot between the two devices. We are also finding that for many businesses mobile applications developed specifically for phablets are an optimal solution given the extra screen space, portability and ease of use.

Samsung  was the manufacturer that really set the stage with the Galaxy Note and just like their campaign for the Galaxy Note II says, its a “Phone? Tablet? Best of Both.” This is a spot in the market that appears to be growing and influential.  Barclays predicts that phablet shipments will nearly double and get to around 228 million units by 2015.

The larger, high resolution displays on these devices are great for high powered mobile applications and yet offer portability that tablets don’t quite match as they are so easy to hold in one hand.

This portability makes mobile applications for business uses a perfect product to optimize for phablet usage. If you have business processes that relies on data entry such as questionnaires or inventory, etc, apps specifically developed for these devices are a perfect way to streamline your processes and work with a device that is ideal for the app and activity.
