Nokia Confirms Its Interest In Making Tablets

Today Nokia held the Lumia 925 launch event in London, where it not only unveiled this new Lumia device, it also admitted that it is very interested in making tablets. A Nokia tablet has been rumored for quite some time now, though the company has not explicitly confirmed that it currently has a tablet in the pipeline. The executive vice president of smart devices at Nokia, Jo Harlow, said that the company is very interested in tablets and that its an area “we’re looking at.” He added that he does not have any particular product information to share at this point in time.

The tablet market has substantially grown since Apple first released the original iPad back in 2010. Now almost every major manufacturer has one, Nokia doesn’t. Given the fact that Nokia has a billion dollar partnership with Microsoft, it can be speculated that Nokia’s alleged tablet might run on Windows 8 or Windows RT, though for all we now, Nokia might decide to go with Android instead. There haven’t been any major leaks related to this tablet as yet, such as alleged parts or images, so perhaps Nokia’s tablet has still not taken a leap from the drawing board.
