Recently, Nokia refreshed their Lumia lineup with the introduction of two Windows Phone 8 devices, Lumia 820 and 920. Both of the phones are intended to be for the US market as of now and are rumored to be launching this November.
Sure, Nokia needs to make them available as the company strives with its smartphone division, we also saw Nokia CEO, Stephen Elop, discussing about Nokia’s plans about the tablet division with Windows 8 OS support.
While talking to ABC news, Stephen Elop uttered his views about the current market for the said eco-system and future aspects of how the Operating system will affect these aspects of technology.
“We have not announced any tablets, but I think the opportunity is very clear. People today increasingly are looking for a common digital experience between their smartphone and tablet, with a PC, and with their gaming platform, and so there’s clearly an opportunity across there. This is something that we’re looking at very closely”Looking at the recent work by Nokia, it looks like Nokia is all set to mark the existence. In such situation, when the recently announced Lumia 920 is getting praised for its innovation, we hope that Nokia’s tablet sets new ways for consumers to consider for Nokia products.
Also, with the Surface tablet being announced by Microsoft itself, it seems that tablet market for Nokia is going to be much more competitive than it would have been. With some OEMs referring the Surface tablet as a competition, some also believe they hold their own consumer base to offer there products to. Nokia excels in hardware uniqueness, and hence can build up an audience well to consider it as a safe bet as it did with the introduction of Lumia 920.
So, what do you all think? Should Nokia release a tablet too or stick to their smartphone exclusivity? Do leave your comments.
