ABI Research refers to these devices as "phablets". Michael Morgan, a senior analyst at ABI Research, revealed his thoughts about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 stating that "it could be a little ahead of its time. Maybe in a year, when people continuously use less voice, this may become the solution for them because they don't necessarily want to use a tablet or carry around a smartphone." ABI predicted that at least 208 million "phablets" will be shipped globally by the year 2015.
