MO­BIC­ITY, $ 699.95 mo­bic­

IS it a tablet? Is it a phone? Samsung doesn’t just blur but breaks the line be­tween the two gad­gets with the Galaxy Mega, a 6.3inch touch­screen de­vice that dwarfs its Note smart­phone. De­spite its size, the 4G Mega is still quite us­able as a phone, pro­vided you’ve got the pocket space for a 199g, 16.7cm de­vice. It de­liv­ers plenty of use­ful wid­gets to fill the larger dis­play – its key­board is eas­ier than ever to nav­i­gate and tak­ing a photo with its 8- megapixel cam­era is like cap­tur­ing a screen­shot from a TV. The Galaxy Mega lacks the cut­ting- edge specs of its Note II brother, how­ever, with a less pow­er­ful dual- core 1.7GHz chip, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB stor­age, the same screen res­o­lu­tion, no sty­lus and only a slightly big­ger bat­tery at 3200mAh. Ph­ablet fans, the short- sighted and those who want to see it all will adore it.
