There is speculation about a new Nokia Windows 8 tablet. Details emerging suggest it will be released in the later part of this year ‘at the earliest’. Nokia will apparently launch a 10 inch dual-core slate to challenge the iPad. This isn’t the first sign that the Finnish mobile phone maker plans to enter the Windows 8 tablet market.
It’ll be run by Windows 8 and powered by a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset. Although Windows 8 works on both computers and tablets it is thought to be better suited to a slate than a computer or laptop.
It is reported that suppliers of tablet components are readying themselves for the Nokia device for the last quarter of this year. This is when Windows 8 is expected to go on general sale, with a fanfair of advertising and promotions on new computers. If Nokia can come through this period then the widely recognised Nokia name could make the tablet the first real challenger to the Apple iPad.
The new OS will include a Windows 8 App Store, these will work across tablets, computers and Windows Phones. This should add a boost to the Windows Phone which at present falls behind the iPhone and Android in terms of sales mainly due to lack of available apps.
