This undated image provided bySamsung shows the company's Samsung Galaxy S III. In the past few years, smartphones have gradually gotten bigger and tablet computers have gotten smaller. So it should come as no surprise that devices in between are starting to emerge. These devices, informally known as phablets, are better described as giant phones than baby tablets, as they can be used for phone calls. And for now, they are closer in size to regular phones, with screens running 5 inches or more diagonally. (AP Photo/Samsung)
