The CEO of Nokia and ex Microsoftie Stephen Elop has already said that the category is interesting for the Finnish company, but also said that there is a need for a different approach to battle against the the market which is currently being dominated by Apple iPad.
A company’s spokesman also talked about the tablet plans,but he also added , “We continue to eye the tablet space with interest, but have made no specific announcements”.
