The Nokia phablet to be called Bendit and sport a 6-inch display?


UPDATE: As some readers have pointed out, the above is simply a fan rendered image of what Nokia's phablet could look like.

It's a glorious time in the mobile industry, for leaks and rumors are spreading like wildfire. Refusing to get overwhelmed by the barrage, though, we once again bring you what may very well turn out to be how Nokia's first phablet looks like.

A pretty concise tweet by @leakschina claims that what we're seeing is going to be called the Nokia Bendit and sport a 6-inch display, in line with our intel from earlier this year. The tweet also mentions that the device will ship running Windows Phone 8.1 and launch some time after the Nokia EOS.

As always, keep the salt in handy, for although this follows what we already knew and expected, none of this is officially confirmed (and we wouldn't bet on that changing any time soon).

Nokia and wp was a winning formula from the very start. Yes, maybe Nokia had its rough patches, but despite all that how is it still alive? Because Nokia have one of the longest running history in the phone market. Windows is a great OS, there is no doubt about it, the ram it require for any of its wp7 or 8 devices are almost negligible.

Oh boy. This thing is going to be heavier than an iPad 3 if the Lumia 920 is anything to go by. Lol

This picture actually has been on the internet for a whole long time. How could you guys at PhoneArena who do about mobile didn't know that?

A Nokia 6 inch screen sounds great, but I hope it doesn't look like that.

Folks of course really big 7 incher Tablet/smart phones need a blue tooth headset for use as a smartphone

I have been a fan of the small Tablet/Smart phone for some time now the Dell streak I think had a 5 inch screen but did not run a window phone. I do not know how well it sold but it's history now.this Nokia 6 incher has a good chance of selling well because a lot folks would like to have super sized smart phone to avoid buying both a tablet and a smart phone. if Nokia had this out earlier on Verizon I would have not bought my Verizon 928. this would serve my needs. A 7 incher if it could be made narrow enough to fit in a pants pocket would even be better

I dont want this to come off as rude, but honestly, that looks way to crazy, cluttered, and out of control. I dont think WP8 can do a phablet device, the software just isnt right for it.

Ardoleon is right. My thumb is only slightly larger than the medium live tile. And in this pic, the thumb dwarfs it. So either this guy has humungous hands... Which is odd because the size of the phone in comparison, or this is a fake.

Dude, can you please stop this nonsense, it's annoying. Why the hell would you think that I have fake accounts? I guess you have a fake account too, Mamasmurf right?

36. thelegend6657 unregistered

I know you are a kiddo, but you guys can't just directly assume that I have fake accounts. Let me ask you a question, is smart*ss your trait?

I thouht we are the same person? lol XD

You seem a little mad. Maybe you should sign out of all of your accounts and take a day off PA. Mamasmurf? Really? If you're trying to be funny, you're only embarrassing yourself. Most people on this site treat you like the joke you are because of the way you act. Time to not let everything get to you and learn to deal with it. And if you take everything to the heart, wait until you get to high school.

Okay, so now I'm embarrassing myself for calling you "Mamasmurf", but don't forget, you're embarrassing yourself as well. Seriously? You and the few smart*sses always assume that I have fake accounts, it's been a month now and you guys still can't forget about the freaking fake accounts. If you want to prove something else, you must show the evidence first before being a smart*ss.
