Park this firmly in rumour territory for now, but another major manufacturer is looking to jump onto the tablet bandwagon. TheStreet.com is reporting that Ashok Kumar, analyst at Rodman Renshaw, has sources indicating that Nokia is working suppliers and design manufacturers on a touchscreen tablet.
“Right now the supply chain is being primed up for a fall release. It has to be on the shelf by September-October to meet demand for the holiday window,” says Kumar.
The news wouldn’t be a surprise given the publicity surrounding tablets at the moment. Unwired View suggests that a MeeGo tablet is unlikely this soon and Windows 7 is more probable if Nokia were to release a tablet this year.
