Nokia Tablet Due in June 2012?
Wednesday morning reports hinted at some answers. The head of Nokia France, Paul Amsellem, told French newspaper Les Echos that the company will have a tablet running on Windows 8 in June 2012.
The report comes just as Nokia's first smartphone based on Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system, the Lumia 800, goes on sale in six European countries: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and the U.K. (See Nokia Ships First Windows Phone to Europe , Nokia Launches Windows Phones, Nokia Has to Rock Its World and Hope for Nokia's Next Billion.)
While it's good to know a tablet is on the roadmap, Nokia has more urgent issues to deal with right now -- winning back lost ground in smartphones and cracking the U.S. market, for example.
