7 inch tablet makers worried about competition from 6 inch phones
Sources from the tablet sector are said to be concerned that 6 inch smartphones, like the 6.1 inch Huawei Ascend Mate, the 6.3 inch Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, or the 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra, will take business away from 7 inch slates. Even entry-level smartphone buyers have a 6 inch model they can purchase. The InFocus N610 has a 6.1 inch screen and is assembled by Foxconn. The phone is priced at NT$11,900 ($397 USD).

White Box manufacturers in China are selling 6 inch models with dual-core processors ($167 USD) while such models powered by quad-core processors are priced at NT$7,000-8,000 ($234-$267 USD). The tablet sources fear 6 inch handsets sold with telecom bundles because telecom connectivity is one thing that the 7 inch slates aren't providing out of the box.
