We have been hearing plenty of rumors about Windows 8 tablets being launched on the market. Most of tech consumers expected them for baptism somewhere in June. This information has been reportedly confirmed by Microsoft executive Stephen Elop. Although, he then emerged to say that he did no such thing. Confusing enough?
So get ready for another wave of bad news: this week, Nokia commented again on their supposed plans of launching the Windows 8 tablet in June. Boss Paul Amsellem said that the Finnish company hasn’t announced any official plans anywhere in the world and at this point is just considering and constructing a real potential tablet strategy.
In a recent Finnish public interview, mister Stephen Elop stuck to the story as well, when saying that Nokia does not have an exact plan, but they are studying the markets with attention. Perhaps such a tablet will come to see the light of day, at some point. So, he definitely left a little door open, as it is obvious that he knows more than he admits.
We hope that Nokia decides soon. With competition from Samsung, Asus and more, Nokia must do something in order to climb up on the big boy ladder. They do have a chance if they manage to release cheap windows 8 tablets that could fight against iPad and the large army of Android tablets. That’s why, in 2012, we are going to see quite a tech fight; we will just have to wait and see how the tablet market further evolves.
