Huawei filed a trademark for a “PhoPad” with the USPTO this week. There’s no guarantee that the manufacturer will come out with such a device — which, given the name, we’d expect to be similar in concept to the ASUS PadFone or FonePad , but who wouldn’t love to pick up their very own PhoPad at the local Best Buy someday?
CES 2014 is right around the corner and we’re bound to see a slew of new phones, tablets, laptops, and more as the new year rings in new devices. One unannounced device we could see? The Huawei PhoPad. Huawei has a history of large devices that blur the phone and tablet line with their Huawei Ascend Mate,announced at last year’s CES alongside the Huawei Ascend P1 and Huawei Ascend D Quad. The Ascend Mate had a 6.1-inch screen and (at the time) was billed as the largest screen on any smartphone.
