That’s not all folks. 2011/2012 is a tablet season. Next to iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Android tablet, a new one is gong to be ‘unleashed’: Nokia and Microsoft continue their cooperation. With Dell, HP and Samsung also rumored to be working on their Windows 8 tablets and ultra-books, it seems that Microsoft now has the support of every major hardware manufacturer for the much awaited Windows 8, which will be launched in 2012.
“In June 2012 we will have a tablet running Windows 8,” said Paul Amsellem, the head of Nokia France.
Given the depth of that relationship, a tablet would be a logical next step, according to Ben Wood, director of research at CCS Insight.
He likely referenced the Lumia 800 as a BMW 5, and the Lumia 710 as the BMW 3. The BMW 7 is presumably going to be the Lumia 900. Nokia has already launched the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710. I guess Mercedes drivers won’t buy Nokia phones anymore..
Rumor has it that its next Windows Phone device will be the Lumia 900, which will have a 4.3 inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, an 8 MP camera, and a 1.4 GHz processor with 16 or 32 GB of internal storage. It is expected to be launched in Q1 2012.
