Nokia comments on possible tablet leak

Nokia comments on possible tablet leak
At an event in Pakistan yesterday, Nokia had something in its presentation that looked a bit odd. There was a tablet alongside a Nokia device (actually between a Nokia device and a desktop device, but no one seemed to notice that), and so the interwebs started buzzing that Nokia would finally break out of the smartphone market and build a tablet. Well, Nokia has commented on the speculation, and you probably could guess what the response was.

Nokia has denied that the device shown was representative of an actual Nokia device and was simply there to compare Windows 8 UI across devices. The statement read:
This is a pretty reasonable response, because it's not like the webs were blowing up with speculation that Nokia was building a desktop machine just because there was a desktop monitor in the picture. Of course, we have to point out that denying that the image was a "Nokia specific product" is not the same as denying that Nokia is building or planning to build a tablet. So, you can take what you will from the statement.

It is better not to produce Windows RT tablet becuase it would be epic fail like the Playbook. Surface RT is a disaster. Why should Nokia first tablet die on arrival ? Nokia think wisly and fire Stephen Flop. Please !

Win RT @ 7 with a great Price I think would sell just fine. It's what I want. (I know I'm not an example for the world BTW) ;)

Agree. Nokia should make Win8 Pro tablet instead... But I don't agree Mr. Elop should be fired. For all we know, he must be the only one now holding the company together. Besides, if the board didn't like the plans, strategy, and the results Elop has for the company, they could have fired him long ago but they didn't.

My suggestion for Nokia: Make sure it's not Windows RT! Make it PRO!

I really love Nokia my first phone was a nokia 3315 and always has been a nokia fans ever since, but on the current status that nokia is in right now its is better just to kill nokia right now than make it suffer more... Meego has potential he just killed it. f**king Elop.....
