The tablet segment contains the most modern tablet browsers like Chrome 49+ , Firefox 49+ and Safari 10+. This covers iOS 9+ and Android 4+.

Tablet are defined by a display size larger than 6". However this is more of a guideline, than a strict rule. There are some phones out there, that are more than 6" but where resolution, performance or even assumed user expectation, clearly makes them a phone. Those devices are indexed as phones, despite their large screen.

The reason why the minimum width is only 600px is because Samsung released a series of popular tablets with a 600px resolution in portrait mode.

As of December 2017 this segment represents ~80% of the tablet browsers and ~4% of all browsers (across all device types).
