Nokia holds the record of being a major mobile industry player who came late into the netbook wars. Although its first netbook venture, the Booklet 3G was not even close to popularity of other manufacturers’ netbooks, there’s not doubt that the Booklet 3G is a pretty powerful and well designed netbook. The problem with Nokia’s Booklet 3G was not so much about what it can do but more because of the fact it came in a little too late.
So, now with the current trend in the computer industry on mobility through tablet PC, Nokia is not going to waste time in joining the tablet wars. Reports by the street.com is indicating that Nokia will soon release its own Nokia Tablet PC.
Actually, it’s quite ironic that Nokia has not yet released its own branded Â tablet pc wherein fact it was one of the pioneers in the industry. In case you’ve forgotten already, Nokia pioneered in the tablet market with its old N77 handheld Internet device. Incidentally the N77 got nothing much to offer for us mobile nomads.
The question now is that will Nokia be able to penetrate the tablet market? Â Will it be more successful than the Booklet 3G?
