Electronics company Samsung unveiled a new device that blends the differences between smartphone and tablet: the new Samsung Galaxy Mega, which will be available as a 5.8 and 6.3-inch model.

Samsung is committed to blend together the smartphone’s portability with the convenience, power, multitasking capabilities, and extensive viewing experience of a tablet. Until now, the poster child for this situation was the Galaxy Note II device. Not any more – today Samsung introduced a cheaper alternative to the Galaxy Note II, the new Galaxy Mega. The device will be marketed as a 5.8 and 6.3-inch model.
