Is Nokia Hiding a HoneyComb Tablet up its Sleeve?

December 30, 2010 - Written By Scott Beard

Let the conspiracy begin. According to a recent article from Digitimes, it appears that Nokia is working on its very own Android tablet, after previous reports have the company swearing the Android OS off.  They said there is “absolutely no truth” to the claim, and “Everyone knows that Symbian is our preferred platform for advanced mobile devices.” The most recent rumor is that Google is giving major priority to its main players like Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC, and included in the list this time, of course, Nokia.

This priority list for future Honeycomb (Android 3.0) operating system devices is leading to notebook vendors facing delays and causing concern for launch schedules. With Symbian falling behind other operating systems, it might possibly be in Nokia’s best interest to expand their tech empire into the Android community.

With Honeycomb products expected to start peeking out in the coming months, Nokia could just be holding back for a big reveal. They’ll need to bring something special to an already packed table. Embrace the Android, Nokia, it means you no harm.
