Nokia looking to make unique tablet

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Unique as in they’ll sell only one?
After recently likening the company to a burning oil platform, Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop now hinted at the company jumping aboard the tablet train.

Speaking to YLE TV, Elop said that the company is currently assessing the right strategy for Nokia. He said that the company has plenty of options, be they Windows oriented tablets or other “software assets”.

Nokia is obviously keen to deliver a product that’s recognizable and unique. Elop said:”There are now over 200 different tablets on the marketplace, only one of them is doing really well. My challenge to the team is I don't want to be the 201st tablet on the market that you cannot tell from all of the others.”

Since we can still recall the golden times of the Finnish giant, we really wish them luck with this, because they’re right on one point – only one of them is doing really well. Perhaps Nokia should make theirs fire proof or inflatable, what with all the burning platform and the freezing sea metaphors?

I don't know how Nokia got so big. They are making a WP7 phone when Android is on a tear and will probably make a tablet with Android when people just want a portable computer (with Windows) to complement their Desktop computer while away from home.

LOL, I'm from Virginia. I have no ulterior motive, I'm just posting what it would take to cause ME to buy one.

Dear Nokia,
I use ONLY your phones since 1996.
The problem is that all your phones available in my GSM operator are plastic & ugly.
Can't you make more small, elegant things like 6730 or 8910. Different for man and woman? 60% of people don't need smarphones, iphones and stuff like that.

I have owned Nokia, LG, Audiovox, Blackberry, and Motorola phones. I now have a Droid X phone and don't see ANY other phone that would cause me to upgrade at this time.

Nokia? Well, if it is x86, Win7/8 and has a display capable of hybrid color eink and backlit LCD.
