Lumia Tablets, Ecosystems, and the Open Android Myth: Nokia’s Execs Get Blunt

Nokia can afford to put tablets and even phablets on the back-burner, relying instead on Microsoft's broader ecosystem to fill in the gaps in the Finnish firm's range, the company's top execs argue, though they concede both firms need to do better in explaining why that ecosystem is so special.

Where’s Nokia’s tablet strategy?

Nokia's Q2 2012 financial results are a difficult mixture of hope - twice as many Windows Phone sales as Q1 - and misery - a $1bn operating loss - but one thing was conspicuous by its absence: a tablet. The Finnish company is still in "transition" mode, senior execs reminded us, with the promise of next-gen Microsoft OSes just around the corner to shake up the Android and iOS battle once more. However, Nokia's complete absence of a visible tablet strategy went unchallenged.
