This should not have the Note branding. 8 inches really is to big for a phone. Why isn't this under the Tab branding?

This is what it should be:

Galaxy S: premium phone up to 5 inches
Galaxy Note: premium phone up to 6ish inches
Galaxy Tab: premium tablet 7+ inches

Just as a follow up, I took out the measuring tape and found out an 8" 'Fablet' would be about the size of a DVD case. You could fool any facial recognition cameras when you would "talk" through it by just turning your head in the opposite direction. /sarcasm

Mobile phones are computers (they have an OS, Processor, Memory (ROM/RAM), that just happen to fit in your pocket. Nonetheless, people are moving away from the traditional 'computer' to phones, tablets or phablets.

The Galaxy Note branding has already been used for a 10.1 inch tablet, so I don't really think they intend for this one to be used as a phone just a smaller version of something that already exists.

This is not intended to be used as a phone. That's why it is called a NOTE, it's ideal for work while on the road. Of course, the GSM bands are there to ensure connectivity, and in case one wants to leave their phone at home, they can make phone calls using this and a BT headset.

It's a slightly smaller note 10.1 with 3g capabilities. What's so hard to comprehend?
I wouldnt mind getting a smaller tablet which supported the S-pen and supported 3g networks.

if samsung can get it in at 350 or under, itll be good. Otherwise, itll be too close to the ipad mini or too close to the nexus 4. If it comes in at 299 without cellular i'd definitely buy, i like the size

Nothing difficult to comprehend. The story was calling it a "phablet", when it is a tablet. The pic has a phone appearance too, which is probably nonsense. Jeez.
