Nokia Prepares to Launch Its Tablet

For at least two years, we are already talking about the launch of a tablet from Nokia.

Nokia Prepares to Launch Its Tablet

For now it seems that this is very near to happen.

During the MWC (Mobile World Congress) – the largest telecommunications event in the world – that took place in February 2013, Stephen Elop, the company’s chief executive, had already announced that a tablet presentation was “very close.”

Still in February, the Nokia Tablet appeared quickly at a company event in Pakistan (see photo below) .Apparently it would have been an involuntary action.

Incidentally, it is even surprising how a company that has sold millions of handsets and smartphones still does not have its tablet.

Perhaps this can be explained by the identity crisis that Nokia has recently experienced.

The main reason lies in the powerful competition of the mobile devices with Android, whose main representative is the Galaxy family, Samsung.

Nokia has decided not to adopt Google’s operating system, preferring to use Windows Phone, and thus maintaining its long-standing partnership with Microsoft.

The problem is that Windows for mobile devices has never been a popular system, not even with the release of Windows 8 in October 2012.

Rounded corners

If the information is correct, the Nokia tablet will be a 10-inch, with a dual core processor Qualcomm, running Windows 8.

The new tablet should integrate the Lumia line, which already includes three smartphones (Lumia 620, Lumia 820 and Lumia 920).

If so, the device will come in “vivid” colors (pink, yellow, blue) and rounded corners.

According to some experts on mobile devices, Nokia could still be preparing a keyboard cover (similar to Microsoft Surface) with a battery attached.

Exclusive Apps

One of Nokia’s strategies to try to persuade consumers to choose their tablet should be the inclusion of unique applications.

One of these apps has even “leaked” on the internet. It is the adidas miCoach , aimed at soccer coaches.

The application will use chips in Adidas products, thus allowing coaches to monitor all aspects of athlete development.
