Competition is heating up. Sony jumping into the Phablet race:
Sony "Odin" Joins HTC DLX In Challenging Samsung Galaxy Note 2 For Phablet Crown - Tapscape
Although, I'm not a big fan of the name...LOL...I neither read the comics nor watched Thor when it was released in theaters recently, and was never big fan of that superhero growing up, but I'm definitely intrigued to see how Sony fits the 6 inch screen into a comfortable mobile device. The Note 2 is already at the limits of what I'd find to be "comfortable," so I can't imagine that they'd come close to the same "size," while still being able to have a comfortable form factor for holding the device...let alone pocketing.
