Nokia Releasing Windows 8 Tablet in Mid 2012

Nokia Releasing Windows 8 Tablet in Mid 2012

If you've anticipated this scenario when Nokia and Microsoft announced their joint commitment - good for you. For those who haven't, 2012 will be the year you get to lay your hands (or cash) down for a Nokia tablet running Windows 8, according to a report by Gizmodo.

In an interview with French newspaper, Les Echos, Nokia's French Division general manger, Paul Amsellem, said that the world would be seeing a Windows 8 Nokia tablet as early as June 2012.

If Nokia showers the same level of attention on their upcoming tablet as much as their flagship series of phones, you can probably predict just how the Nokia tablets will look and feel like. Will the tablet be all aluminium and glass like the Nokia Lumia 800?.

In the same interview, Amsellem also confirmed the existence of a top-tier Nokia phone which runs Windows 8. He also compared the Nokia Lumia 800 to a BMW 5 Series, while the mysterious unreleased phone was compared with a BMW 7 Series equivalent.
