NOKIA Planning to build "Slate tablet" with Windows 8 OS..[Exclusive Pics]

59 comments
 

Nokia fully expects, and plans, to do what Microsoft and its handset partners have so far been unable to do: make 
Windows 8 a must-have Mobile platform.


 NOKIA is reportedly considering plans to build Slate tablet with Windows 8 based OS..Its said Nokia Slate tablet would be available by the end of 2012.The move would be a response to the success of Apple's iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad, as well as Android-based tablets and smartphones from Google and its manufacturing partners. To create its tablet competitor,

While Windows 8, with its Phone 7-inspired touch interface looks promising, I have to wonder if Nokia`s rumored Slate tablet plans would be an Xbox 360-style success or a Kin-sized disaster. There are several pitfalls that could trap the company. If the purported tablet has 3G or 4G connectivity, will Microsoft and its carrier partners offer expensive pricing, as happened with the Kin? Will Microsoft stick with its tablet over the long term or will the Microsoft-branded device be discontinued as soon as it appears, another Kin specialty.
Perhaps Nokia plan is to do something similar to what Google did with the Android-based Nexus One. By building its own tablet,Nokia is in a unique relationship with Microsoft, contributing a range of its own assets that can show the world what a properly envisioned Windows 8 tablet should look like. A Windows 8 tablet free of manufacturer crapware and with killer specs that would make any iPad 2 owner blush.


Nokia To Hit Every Price Point

As for the Slate tablet, Tom’s Guide points to a comment left by Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin on a mobile forum. According to Murtazin, Nokia’s 2012-2013 strategy includes a few inexpensive, sub-100-euro phones, a mid-tier S60 fifth-edition phone, a mid- to high-end Symbian device, a few high-end Windows Phone 7 handsets and one Windows Phone 8 tablet, scheduled for 2012 – but which Murtazin expects will be delayed until 2013.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop & Microsoft's chief executive Steve Ballmer where speaking at the company's annual partner conference in Washington which was broadcaste live on the internet.

'This year, one of the most important things that we will do in the smart device category is really push forward with Windows 8-based slates,' said Ballmer. 
'This is a terribly important area for us.'
While visiting Finnish television program A-Plus, Stephen Elop CEO of Nokia was asked about the possibility of a Nokia tablet. Elop emphasized that Nokia would not be joining  the tablet market if they could not differentiate themselves from other tablet makers.
“There are now over 200 different tablets on the marketplace and only one of them is doing really well………I don’t want to be the 201st tablet on the market that you can’t tell from all of the others, we have to take a uniquely Nokia perspective” -Stephen Elop-
 On the subject of whether a Nokia tablet would be running Windows Phone OS, Elop said that they are definitely weighing their options and are trying to figure out what is the best tablet strategy for Nokia


  Microsoft already does something similar for computers with its Signature PC program through the Microsoft Store. Signature PCs are basically computers made by companies such as Dell, HP and Samsung that are sold without trial ware and optimized for performance by Microsoft. The company's Notified Nokia Windows 8 Slate tablet may be just an extension of the Signature PC program, but with a Nokia-Microsoft branded device..
Nokia is already hard at work with the development of its first handsets that would run under Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Operating System (OS), and a few more details on the matter have just leaked into the wild.
But according to Öistamo, it means that Nokia is going to be very careful that any changes will not break Windows Phone applications or disrupt the development environment for programmers.
"Even if we have the right to change it, it would be unwise to change it in ways that cause problems,"


However, what's interesting is that, along with these Windows Phone 7 handsets, Nokia is also rumored to be working on the development of a Windows 8 tablet PC.
 

“Nokia R&D - 4 Windows Phone 7 and 1 Slate tablet (Win8 presumably). 2 phones used chassis 1, 2 based on chassis 2 - like HTC Ignate (middle end),” the aforementioned tweet reads. 

"Nokia Windows 8 Slate tablet will be a Killer device"
                                -Quinn Jacobson-
                                               -:Research leader 





But would you be more interested in buying a Nokia Windows 8 Slate tablet or a Windows 8 tablet from typical device makers such as Sony or HTC?

Other than that we don’t know anything more about this Nokia Windows 8 Slate tablet, but will be sure to post more details as and when we get them.

  1. cooool Interesting. Because Microsoft-Nokia, like Apple, is one of the major computer esque product manufactures, and because their tablets will actually be flash ready (-cough- unlike any product from Apple), they just might have a shot at making this tablet work.

    Hi Admin
    I am using Windows 8 Build 7955.
    My problem is that when I play Games, my mouse stuck in between the game.
    And there is no problem in mouse because its work fine in Windows Explorer.
    How can I contact Microsoft about this problem because that windows is not released.
    So i want to you to solve my problem.
    Thanks in Advance

  3. if you show something, it should be available the following month not year, second, by the time this comes out people want to see something newer....releasing the product next year allows google to increase its market share and join apple.

    Anyway, I'm still getting my Windows 8 . . . . just have to wait a year ....sigh :(

  4. Oh dear God..In the photo this Slate tablet is hot . It loooooooked way better on the video [where Joe showed the UI features] . Imagine it on HANDS ! How beautifull .

  5. Try to keep in mind they are trying to keep the same OS on tablets and desktops. Would you have expected Windows 8 to be available on desktops before 2012? In the end I don't know if it's the right strategy for them, especially since it gives another year to the competition. But man, if they can actually pull it off and have the same great UI that works well on both tablet and desktop, they will win. 2012 will be a turning point for Nokia

  6. so what ever the design is so hot i am dying to grab it as soon as it comes in market

  7. OMG waw waht an amzing style ..It will sure Blow off other all so called tablets ..& i am sure this will bea disaster to tablet sector

  8. Wooo shiiiit cool....@Admin I just registered to comment on this amazing post artical..
    Just imagine trying to make changes to the folder options on a Windows 7 slate.... you would really need skinny fingers


    Not really, I can do it with ease on mine, and I have rather huge hands.

    I'm actually trying to make a video detailing my experiences with a Windows 7 tablet PC.

  9. Love you Nokia OMG at last but not the least,,there is Somthing innovative Device coming up Slate tablet woooooo
    can`t wait to get it...

    Oh dear Windows on such a platform would be a waste of plastic.

    It will be slow, buggy and short of features.

    Just like every other release of a Windows based product.

    Nokia is the technology king, there's no company as big as them in the world, in Korea, they had technologies from Nokia that Apple somehow "invented" since years. Apple completely copied Nokia, and they're just good at suing people.
    Nokia rocks..

    I have an N8, It really is an iphone beater once you learn to use it. I would be first on the list if Nokia makes a tablet as good as the N8, with the bonus of having Microsofts latest Os. Simply a perfect marrage. Cant wait.
