Talk of a potential Nokia tablet has been pretty nebulous when it comes to anything more official than analyst speculation, but comments from game developers Fishlabs have reignited the rumors. According to the company’s blog, Fishlabs “are working on a AAA title closely together with Nokia featuring OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics for a large screen.” There’s no suggestion of exactly how big that screen is, however, leaving us unclear on whether the device in question is a smartphone or a tablet.
If a smartphone, the most obvious candidate would be the Nokia N8, tipped to have a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen. However, whether that qualifies as a suitably “large screen” is arguable; it’s also possible that Fishlabs have been developing for a new tablet device from Nokia. Either way, it’s good to see the Finnish company are looking to gaming for whatever models are on the horizon; that’s proved to be a lucrative avenue for Apple and a persuasive tool for drawing in mobile users.
