Speaking to reporters in Sydney, Mr Elop said the company was not yet announcing anything, and had not yet made any formal decisions, but his comments suggested Nokia would look to add to its Lumia smartphone line with a tablet device.
“We haven’t announced tablets at this point, but it is something we are clearly looking at very closely. We are studying very closely the market right now as Microsoft has introduced the Surface tablet, so we are trying to learn from that and understand what the right way to participate would be and at what point in time.”
“We would consider any option [Android or Windows] … It is important to note that the opportunity for companionship is something that any user is looking for. So, when you think about the Lumia 920, running on Windows phone, having a Windows tablet or PC or Xbox is something that will give us the opportunity to have a pretty integrated experience. Our first focus on what we look at is clearly in the Microsoft side,” Mr Elop said
“But we have made no decision or announced nothing.”
