Strategy Analytics, a market research firm often cited by many publications, reports that Nokia will not announce a Windows tablet at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). There have been rumors of it happening, but the firm believes Nokia will be concentrating on smartphones for MWC this year.
Following extensive channel checks by our Tablet & Touchscreen Strategies (TTS) service, we understand Nokia will not unveil a tablet with a Microsoft operating system at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).
During an event in Pakistan earlier this week, an image shown on screen that looked a lot like a potential tablet got some bloggers excited. Nokia later debunked the rumor by explaining it was just an example tablet UI. Nokia has not denied or confirmed if there will be a tablet announcement at MWC, so Strategy Analytics could still be wrong. We’ll find out for sure in just a few days.
In regards to smartphones, we’re hoping for an announcement of the next Nokia Lumia device with Pureview technology.
Any Nokia fans wanting a Lumia tablet?
