    Lenovo is apparently working on a gigantic Android tablet. A Lenovo tablet with an 18.4-inch display showed up on GFXBench. The device had the following model name, PB2-690N, and showed the following specs beyond just the huge display:
    • 18.4-inch display (2560×1440)
    • Snapdragon 652 processor
    • 4GB of RAM
    • Android 6.0.1 “Google Edition.” (nearly stock Android)
    • Front camera is 8MP
    • Rear is only 0.3MP (why bother putting such a weak rear camera at all?)
    Would you consider buying a tablet of this size?

    Didn't Samsung try the same idea... I recall looking at the beast... No.

    18.4? No. That's bigger than my laptop and I hate carrying that around.

    I wish someone would make a cheap 12-14" tablet with the primary purpose of being a second screen/desktop for your laptop.

    Who in their right mind would even think to use such a monstrous device as a camera to take pictures of anything other than themselves while looking at it? A rear camera on that thing is just absolutely ridiculous.

    You should see the people with iPads taking pics. "Let me hold this book up and snap pics"

    The biggest screen on my lap that I can enjoy is the 15" of a laptop, I can't imagine holding up that beast.
