The speculated phablets are said to cost between 200 and 250 dollars without a contract.

Hewlett-Packard (HP) is reportedly planning to launch 6 and 7-inch ‘phablets’ aimed at emerging markets.

HP had been hinting to a re-entry in the smartphone market for over a year and latest reports point to a way back through large screened smartphones.

According to Cnet, the speculated phablets are said to cost between 200 and 250 dollars without a contract.

The report said that HP had attempted to make a hold in the smartphone market after acquiring Palm in 2010, but the WebOS-based devices failed to catch on with consumers and eventually the company decided to pull the plug on its new tablet and smartphones in 2011.
