Nokia chairman says they are working on tablets and hybrid devices

We’ve heard several times that Nokia is interested/working on tablets. A few months ago Nokia Head of Design admitted to spending a third of his time working on an upcoming tablet. The rumored specs are a 10″ screen and dual-core Qualcomm SoC.

To further confirm this Nokia chairman Jorma Ollila has said they are not only working on tablets, but also hybrid devices.

“Tablets are an important one, so that is being looked into, and there will be different hybrids, different form factors [handset designs] in the future.”

We look forward to a wide range of devices and formfactors running Windows software.

  • Pookiewood

    Yes please!

  • Good to hear it. That form factor is gonna be a big draw for upgrades to Win8 if they manage it well. Blurring those boundaries is the future.

  • those mockups do look nice. but nokia 8 phones will look different right? I’d like their rumored tablets to look like their new phones. Im assuming they will be doing same as far as colors.
