Marko spoke with Finnish magazine Kauppelehti Optio and actually said "we are working on it". Stephen Elop, Nokia's chief, wants the company to enter the tablet market, but instead of releasing something that everyone else is doing, they want to do something different in order to stand out.

Most companies who are competing in the tablet market, aren't really competing in the tablet market per se. They're really just competing against the benchmark in the tablet market: Apple's iPad. A Nokia spokesperson said "we continue to eye the tablet space with interest, but have made no specific announcements".

With Nokia and Microsoft teaming up, we should expect a Windows 8-based tablet, and hopefully, something quite different. Exciting times for Nokia, and consumers.
