We won’t believe this one until we see more solid evidence. However, there are rumors that Apple may release a phablet later this year. Phablet, for those who don’t know is just an industry/consumer buzzword for a huge phone (Phone + tablet = phablet. Get it?)
If rumors are accurate, we can expect to see this device in May. That’s way outside of Apple’s usual release/announce time. Even Apple’s WWDC software showcase isn’t until around June each year. Adding to that, past years have always involved fall announcements for new Apple iOS devices (both iPhones and iPads). Is it possible? Sure, but we won’t be totally convinced until we see more evidence.
