Another phone maker bites the phablet bait: Lenovo K860 comes with a 5" HD screen, Exynos and onscreen buttons

The monster of a device features a 5" display with 1280x720 pixels of resolution with thankfully onscreen buttons only, as all gigantic phones should be, since it is running Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
Samsung's Exynos 4412 quad-core processor to supply it, the same as in the international version of the Galaxy S III. The rest is up there with the times - 8MP camera on the back plus a 2MP front snapper, 1GB of RAM and 2, 250mAh battery to keep things going.
We don't know yet whether Lenovo plans to release the handset worldwide, as it is official only in China for now, but the company confirmed its dedication to become top player in smartphones at the last quarterly results conference call, so there is a possibility.

Well the Sammy Note was not only the early bird, but also a very good one at that... coming so late to the party, these new Phablets will now have to compete with the Note 2 Actually it will be quite shameful if Sammy is able to launch the Note 2 before others launch their firsts!!

So is Samsung now allowed to sue every company venturing into "Phablet" waters? I hope some people don't take what I said personally. I don't wanna be blamed if you die of a heart attack.

Samsung sold them the parts. The screen, the CPU, the memory, hell they could even assembled the whole circuits board for Lenovo. It's call business. Only Apple believe they own the mobile technologies. Only Apple are allow to make their billions and trillions from it. Such bully.

Large market where lots of devices are made, thus cheaper to ship, and many companies (like Lenovo) are based there. Same reason some Motorola devices are U.S.-only

Did a search for "phablet" and this never came up on this site; stumbled on it in Google. Would this phone ever be available in the U.S.? Why does it take us so long to get the great developments? I’m in Austin, Texas, and need a phone to get my salon assistant. Right now, until a phone can be on AT&T, 4GLTE, is honkin' big, takes notes, has a fast processor, and super memory. It looks like I’ll be giving her an “IOU” card for now.
