Smartphones seem to be growing in size, but there is a point where a device should be considered a phablet, or in the case with the recently unveiled Hisense X1 -- a tablet.

Naturally, we were a bit curious about this oversized smartphone so we made sure to spend a bit of hands-on time checking it out.

ZTE BlueWatch hands-on

It's time that Android tablets got serious. That's Samsung's argument here at CES 2014, and the tablet it expects to convince us with is the Galaxy NotePRO. As the "Note" branding suggests, this is an S Pen equipped slate similar to the Note 10.1 and Note 3 of 2013, but the PRO nomenclature signifies what Samsung argues is a real step up in productivity: a tablet that's just as much at home creating content as it is consuming it. We stopped by for some hands-on time ahead of the Galaxy NotePRO's launch; read on for some first-impressions.
