Recently Nokia released their first tablet computer. This is the first tablet ever released by Nokia to the market ever since we’ve known Nokia and this is probably as a result of Microsoft’s recent decision to invest in the latter.
It seem they wanted the launch to coincide with Apple’s latest release of the iPad Air as it was done a few moments after. Nokia’s new and first tablet comes with a 10.1 inch screen display

Well, for most people who know Nokia, the company is basically the bastion of mobile phones and did rule the mobile world until stiff competition from smartphone brands started heating up.
Although one would say that Nokia mobile phones were a bit like PCs themselves, giving the smart technology behind them, going into the production of tablets is something that is coming a bit late but not too late.
There is no clear dominance yet of who rules the tablet market even though Apple rides the chair for now, tech companies from Asian countries and Android platforms are catching up quickly. While most Chines Android tablets are made so affordable at less than a $100, tablets from Apple and Nokia are already priced at over $400 each.
