Trademarks can be a funny business. Sometimes they’re so vague that you can’t do much but express a big “WTF” in your mind, and other times they have a way of letting you know exactly how a company is thinking. Such is the case with Pantech, who has trademarked the “Fablet” character mark. This is quite interesting, as it’s a direct homophone of the “phablet” word that has been tossed around as of late. That’s interesting considering “phablet” is available, and is used much more commonly to describe the big phone market that many are targeting.

That said, it could be hinting at an apparent interest for Pantech to create a big phone of its own. That class of phone typically comes with high-end specs, which is notable as Pantech typically targets the entry level and mid-range with its smartphones. We’re not sure what kind of goods they could be thinking to cook up, or if this trademark means anything at all, but our interests are pretty much piqued.
