With today's ever-increasing screen sizes, you can do much more with a phone now, and what you used to do on a slate, so that somewhat explains than in the top 10 the first 6 are phones, next 3 tablets, and the last one a "phablet"...

It won't be long before the phablet category displaces the tablets. I was thinking of getting a N7, but after the Note II, I am going to pass on the N7.

I don't get it - the iPhone doesn't have a download manager, nor a file manager...
