Seriously, would you use an 18.4-inch tablet?

If you’ve ever seen Apple’s iPad Pro, you’ll understand how freaking huge a 12.9-inch tablet actually looks in real life. In the quest for gargantuan gadgets, where should we stop?

For instance, Lenovo is now rumoured to be working on an 18.4-inch tablet, putting the iPad Pro to shame. That’s according to a recent GFX Bench readout that revealed a new Android tablet – codename PB2-690N – with incredible girth.

The device has an impressive QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixel) resolution, trumping Samsung’s Full HD 18.4-inch Galaxy View tablet. It’s also more substantial than Alcatel’s Full HD 17.3-inch Xess.

But the question is: would you be willing to use an 18.4-inch tablet?

Take part in our poll:


According to the benchmark readout, the new Lenovo slate will be powered by Qualcomm’s relatively new Snapdragon 652 processor. It also looks set to feature 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, marking it as a fairly powerful bit of kit. There’s also an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera to boot.

The device is poised to run on Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which sets it apart from the raft of all-in-one Windows PC/tablet hybrids we’re increasingly seeing of late.

Unfortunately, Lenovo hasn’t made any official announcement regarding such a device, so take this report with due caution. It’s also worth noting that Lenovo already has a device with the model number PB1, a 6.8-inch phablet called the Phab Plus. A 18.4-inch tablet would be quite the leap.
