Mobile phone giant Nokia is reportedly getting ready to release an ARM processor-based tablet computer in the fourth quarter of 2010.
According to a Digitimes.com report, the phone maker has 100 engineering samples doing the rounds, ready for testing. However, despite the claim, the report doesn’t know whether the device is a seven- or nine-inch type however, it is expected to be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics.
Nokia has made no statements about a tablet but it is working on a new operating system in conjunction with chip giant Intel. Called MeeGo, the operating system is a combination of Intel’s work on its Moblin operating system and Nokia’s work on Maemo.
MeeGo is designed to work on three platforms – netbook, smartphone and tablet – with the latter being most recently demonstrated at the Computex tradeshow in Taipei.
