Nokia hints at Windows 8 tablets

MrSeb (471333) writes | more than 2 years ago

Windows 0

MrSeb writes "When the Microsoft-Nokia strategic alliance was first announced in February, there was absolutely no mention of money: Nokia, seemingly on its own accord, had decided that Windows Phone 7 was the future of its smartphone efforts. A week later it emerged that Microsoft and Google had been competing for Nokia’s affections — a bidding war that concluded with Microsoft agreeing to pay Nokia billions of dollars to help market and develop Windows phones. Fast forward to today and Nokia’s CEO, Stephen Elop, is making rather odd comments about the tablet market: “There’s a new tablet opportunity coming. We see the opportunity,” Elop said to Bloomberg Businessweek yesterday. Furthermore, he had only positive things to say about Windows 8 — that it’s a “supercharged” version of WP7, but for tablets. Does that sound like Nokia is planning to bring out a Windows 8-powered tablet? Is it possible that Microsoft’s multi-billion-dollar agreement with Nokia also included Windows 8? Is there hope for a sidetalkin' Nokia tablet?"
