There has been much anticipation that we would see a Nokia Windows 8 Tablet announced at Mobile World Congress ( MWC ) next week, but now it seems this will not happen.
The rumours around a Nokia Tablet first surfaced way back in 2011 and since then the rumours have continued to surface, with the latest showing images of it ( see above ). The previous Nokia Tablet rumour article can be viewed here.
The logical place for Nokia to announce the Nokia Windows 8 Tablet would be at MWC which opens in Barcelona on 25th February. However, this now seems unlikely, as a Blog post from Strategy Analytics states that “following extensive channel checks by our Tablet & Touchscreen Strategies (TTS) service” they say a Nokia Tablet launch during MWC is unlikely.
So once again, Nokia at MWC will evolve around the unveiling of some new smartphones. And of course, we still expect to see the Nokia Tablet launch sometime in 2013 – it just wont be at MWC.
