Yes, I get it. Holding up your iPad to your ears is extremely ridiculous. I have seen some people putting their phablets on their ears and it's so oversized. But who ever said it has to be that way? Speakerphone and microphone can work. For privacy, use Apple's earpods. Won't fit in the pocket? There's a backpack for that. For someone like me, this is something I've always been looking for. I'd totally dump my iPhone in a heartbeat if there's an iPad mini phablet. What do you think?
