Nokia has long been charming us with its vast and diverse range of mobile handsets. The Finnish communications company has even started making inroads in the extremely competitive smartphone segment after an initial no-show, a fact that even Apple boss Steve Jobs acknowledges when he said its Nokia that might pose the biggest challenge to Apple’s dominion in the smartphone segment.
“We are always eyeing what I would call the ‘neighbouring businesses’ to see if it would make sense for us to enter it,” said Niklas Savander, executive vice president and general manager of markets at Nokia.
The device what many believe will take forward Nokia’s tablet dreams is the Z500 and is in news right now after a Nokia insider, Eldar Murtazin tweeted: “Nokia aren’t happy with price/features.” This also is some sort of a confirmation of the device that was rumored to be in development ever since the iPad had entered markets and was all believed to be ready by fall of this year.
That’s not all since the Z500 also came to be seen at Nokia’s own Ovi Store, further fueling hopes of the tablet that’s expected to run Intel’s MeeGo operating system. The leak has since long been plugged though not before letting us have a sneak peek of the things to come from the Nokia camp.
