The folks of Pocketnow have a very interesting piece regarding the Blue Studio 7.0, a tablet with a 7 inch screen and phone features. They were surprised to see that this tablet is easy to use with a single hand, which is a wet dream for all device makers.

An interesting part of the Blu Studio 7.0 experience is a semicircle in its lower right corner, that opens up to show a series of apps and options, that are extremely easy to press while hold the device, with the very same hand holding it. The thumb does all the work. Each area of the semicircle (there are 3 of them) is color coded and features a series of apps and functions, including media, tools, Gmail, browser and more.

I’m sure the area is customizable and in case the Blu Studio 7.0 tempts you, I must mention it’s a 1024 x 600 pixel device, with a dual core 1.3 GHz SoC, 8 GB of storage and 1 GB of RAM. The product is unlocked for use on any GSM carrier you want and obviously it doesn’t have LTE. The price tag is $150, but the fascinating part is that while some of us laugh at people using 7 inch phones, other find comfort in discovering a smart way to interact with a bigger screen… Time for gadget maturity!

    I had the Blu Studio 7.0 two days before Christmas and within days after I saw it announced
    on my favourite tech site – right here at tablet-news. It’s not a top tier device but it’s exactly what I’ve been searching for, size and functionality. It’s cameras are weak at 5.0 and 2(front) but offers a fair buffet of features, sound is subpar for a phone with two under bottom speakers and the battery is just acceptable at 3000 mAh giving me just under 10hrs fairly heavy use from a full charge. Non of these are anything to get excited about but the total package for $150.00 is not shabby and after years of using android and owning about fifteen tablets, and half as many phones from every major maker, this is THE FIRST EVER ANDROID DEVICE THAT Has ALLOWED ME TO LOAD ALL AND ANY APPS TO MY miniSD (not just Pics/Videos and Music) so that I have barely needed to touch the 5gb on board memory available to the user. Note: I’ve never rooted a device (wished many times I could). Loving this phablet experience and gave up a richer featured and well-built ZTE Zmax to my wife ungrudgingly.
