Nokia’s tablet ambitions have once again reared their head, with a little more grist for the rumor mill. According to DigiTimes‘ sources at component manufacturers, Nokia has apparently produced “about 100 engineering samples” of a tablet device which it will be using for testing; the tablet has a 7- or 9-inch touchscreen, they believe, and is manufactured by Foxconn. The rumors follow earlier talk of a “large screen” device with OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics for gaming.
The Nokia tablet would be based on ARM processors, have integrated cellular wireless connectivity and, it’s suggested, likely run MeeGo, the collaboration between the Finnish company and Intel. We’ve already seen a demo of the MeeGo tablet UI earlier on today. DigiTimes reckon Nokia could launch the tablet as soon as Q4 2010.
