Phone? Tablet? The brand-new Samsung Mega is kinda, sorta in-between

The power of a tablet and the convenience of a phone. What's not to love?

This is the Samsung Mega. With a 6.3" screen, the Mega is somewhere between a phone and a tablet just like the Samsung Note. Some writers are calling these devices "phablets" but, frankly, that word is ridiculous and we won't be joining in. The device is interesting though!

The Samsung Mega only weighs 200g so it's as convenient as a smartphone but has the power of a tablet. This means you could watch a couple of episodes of New Girl in HD on the way to work without it completely draining your battery. Samsung say it's still compact enough to fit in a pocket but we suspect it's more a stash-in-your-handbag phone, to be honest.

The Mega has an 8-megapixel camera for photos and videos, and you can add up to 64gb of storage with memory cards and carry your entire music library in your handbag. If you have friends with Samsung phones you can share stuff via WiFi, including your entire screen, and stream photo and video straight to your computer.

Reassuring if, like us, you're forever losing cables.

You'll be able to pick up a Mega at the Samsung store in London's Westfield in May, if you're interested.
