Head of Nokia France hints that a higher-end Lumia and Windows 8 tablet is in the works
When speaking of the recently announced Nokia Lumia series of devices the head of operations in France likened them to BMW cars. The Lumia 800 is the equivalent of the BMW 5 series but soon Nokia will have “a full range with a 7 series and a 3 series.” He didn’t say but it is safe to assume that the Lumia 710 fits the mold of the BMW 3 series (not counting the M3).
What device could we expect to fit the shoes of a 7 series? Could it possibly be the rumored Nokia Ace that is said to feature a 4.3-inch ClearBlack Super AMOLED display and a zippy 1.4GHz processor? Only time will tell.
In addition to the hinting of a high-end Nokia Lumia device he also said that they plan on shipping a Windows 8 tablet by June of 2012. No further details were given but that target seems to be a little quicker than the rumored fall release date for Windows 8 tablets.
What would want to see from Nokia in their next Lumia series device in order to relate it to the BMW 7 series? From a hardware standpoint there really isn’t much they can do beyond a larger screen until future Windows Phone updates bring support for LTE, HD screens, dual-core processors etc. Tell us what you think.
