See what one analyst says about an upcoming iPhablet from Apple.
When the iPhone 5 came we were all very excited since it featured a bigger display among other things. But to an analyzer, we expect an iPhone with a display bigger than the current iPhone 5.
Barclays Capital analyst Ben Reitzes says we should expect Apple to release an iPhone with a larger display that would be a “iPhablet,”. Why does he think this? well it is because of the fact that phablet devices are expected to rise in popularity.
He also said that he feels that being able to use the iPhone 5 with one hand is “less important since phone calls are becoming less important than navigation, texting, videos, books and Web access for many.”
He also said that we shouldn´t hold our breaths about hearing an announcement for an iPhablet since he believes that an Phone 5S will be released in the middled of 2013 along with a low-budget iPhone. We should be hearing about a larger iPhone in Q4 2013 / Q1 2014, that is, if it even exists.
