After Samsung Galaxy Note gets tremendous success with its 5 inch display, many Indian manufacturers are jumping into 5 inch Android device bandwagon. 5 inch display devices are the hybrid of tablet and smartphone, and these devices also known as phablets. Even LG, never a leader in handset segment had a very successful run with their 4:3 ratio 5 inch device Optimus Vu in South Korea and Japan.
In last couple of weeks Indian manufacturers have launched several phablets in town. Spice announced Stellar Horizon Mi-500, Micromax launched A100 Canvas, Wickedleaks launched Wammy Notes, Kobian launched Mercury magiQ and iBall brought Andi 5C.

Now from the chart above you can see that Micromax A100 is the winner on the basis of price. I mentioned price first, as all of them are budget/affordable tablet-phone hybrid.
Feature wise all of them offers more or less same – Android 4.0, dual SIM, 1GHz processor & other features. Spice is yet to release Mi-500. Apart from WickedLeaks (Wammy Notes), all companies have country wide strong after sales services due to their prior presence over handset or PC accessories market.
