Beleaguered Nokia preps Windows 8 tablet ‘iPad killer’ for relase later this year

“Nokia’s design head Marko Ahtisaari confirmed in an interview that the company was developing a tablet. Without saying what it involved, he promised Kauppalehti Optio that it would be unique in a sea of would-be iPad rivals. The device was important enough that it was consuming a third of Ahtisaari’s time,” Electronista reports.
“Nokia’s tablet is believed to be a Windows 8 design using a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip. [According to Reuters, it is expected to be released later this year]. If true, it would depend almost exclusively on Metro-based apps and wouldn’t have access to legacy or traditionally designed Windows apps,” Electronista reports. “Apart from using Microsoft’s new OS, it’s uncertain what Nokia would do to create a significantly different experience than other Windows tablet supporters.”
