a lot of overlap

Many of the new high end Android phones have very large screens (up to 5.3" on the Galaxy Note) a lot of RAM and a powerful CPU. They are just as much mini-tablets as phones.

That's the google POV: from 4.0 upwards, you develop for Android, and then take form factor differences (which include tablets) into account. Esp. new crops of phones are going to feature screen res > ipads.
The difference between 5.3'' note and 7'' isn't really substantial.
