Nokia Z500 tablet facing failure as carriers reject pricing?

Some Thanksgiving rumor about Nokia's tipped tablet plans this morning, with arch insider Eldar Murtazin claiming that the future of the mysterious slate is unclear after operators supposedly balked at the pricing. Confirmed detail regarding the tablet is scant, though a listing for the Nokia Z500 was spotted in the Ovi Store earlier this month.

As for hardware, we've seen talk of a 7- or 9-inch touchscreen and Foxconn tipped as the OEM. Previous rumors indicated Nokia was working on a "large screen" device with OpenGL ES 2.0 support for gaming. OS is likely to be MeeGo, of course. Murtazin also claims that Samsung will be predominantly shifting to Android 3.0 for their tablet plans, which comes as little surprise.
