Nokia has also not been left away from getting plagued in such situation. In 2011, Nokia was facing a financial turmoil and it saw a huge deep in their revenue and image subsequently.
No doubt, Apple’s products will always make you feel like you’re using a product of an outer space. Being a leader in smartphone and tablet segment, Apple has done wonders, but one thing they lack, off lately, is the advantage of super sexy design like lumia series handsets.

The combination of design inspired from lumia series handsets and Windows 8 OS could do wonders. There is no doubt the Nokia stands a good chance with Lumia series tablets (if this is what they call their upcoming tablets).
DigiTimes reports that Nokia will venture into tablet PC market by 10-inch Windows 8 tablet. They have gone further speculating that those tablet could sport Dual-core Qualcomm’s processor. Source close to their ear murmurs that Compal Electronics will handle the production of 10-inch tablets and they are expected to ship 200,000 units by the end of Q4 2012.
This will Nokia and Microsoft an enough thrust to their venture in tablet OS. It will give them a good stand to fight against likes of Google Android and Apple iPad. To be fair, the success of Windows 8 tablet will hugely depend on the success of Windows 8 OS. It would be interesting to see how next few months turns out to be for Microsoft as a leading software provider. Considering that Windows 8 consumer preview is already out, it won’t take much long for final shipping version to arrive in the market.
Nokia will be then obliged to ride on the success of Windows 8 OS by launching Windows 8 tablet with their own lumia series handset design. Are you excited about the new Windows 8 tablets?Tags: nokia tablet
