At the unveiling of Nokia’s new flagship, the Lumia 925, one of its executives said that the Finnish firm is “very interested in tablets.” This is according to CNET.
Executive vice president of smart devices for Nokia, Jo Harlow, said, “We’re very interested in tablets and that’s an area we’re looking at.” Sadly, she wouldn’t go into the specifics.
She went on to say, “I don’t have any product news I can share.”
Currently, Nokia is the only major device manufacturer that hasn’t come up with its own tablet. Although this may seem strange to some, it’s understandable why Nokia is quite apprehensive when it comes to the tablet market.
True, there are many manufacturers that have tried to market their own tablet, but none have come close to challenging the dominant device in the tablet market, the iPad.
Word on the street is, Nokia is working on a tablet and has been trying out various form factors. If ever the Finnish firm does launch a tablet, we’re almost certain that they will launch a tablet running Microsoft’s Windows 8 or Windows RT, given their partnership with Microsoft.
It is rumoured, however, that Nokia is considering an Android-powered tablet, with Nokia CEO, Stephen Elop previously discussing the advantages of a 7-inch Android tablet.
