Say Goodbye To eInk Readers This Year

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rumors: Larger Display, Better Processor

Today though, the Galaxy Note 3 has surfaced again in a report from The Korea Times, the same publication which was the source of the original screen bump rumor back in December.

The publication again claims that the Galaxy Note 3 will be released later in the year and that when it does, it will feature a 6.3-inch display. However, it also looks like, unsurprisingly, that Samsung will be using a new processor inside of the Galaxy Note 3 as well.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

No, don’t ask me how the hell that will work. I still can’t wrap my head around the Ascend Mate with the 6.1″ display.

See it after the break next to the iPhone 5 to really blow your mind.

Phablets are hot. IHS iSuppli thinks so too.

People would rather carry one device, not two. Why put that Kindle or Nook in a bag when the phone is always at hand? Here’s the first Galaxy Note:


All of you who would carry two devices? You probably wouldn’t buy a phablet anyway. Others have and more will. And they won’t buy an eInk reader. The phablet will be their reader.

And don’t blah blah blah about expensive. Not every phablet will be 6.1 or 6.2 inches. The category starts around five inches. And those will be cheap from China this year at all pre-pay phone stores, contract free. And did I mention they will also be cheap? No, not sub-$100, but most likely sub-$200. Cheap enough. Why spend $50-$70 on a slow and dim eInk screen when there’s full color that can also make calls and view the web and oh look Twitter too.
