Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has gone on the record saying that Nokia is willing to consider "any option" for the OS on its upcoming tablet. Both Android and Windows are in the running with Nokia leaning towards Windows at the moment.

With the surmounting success of its Windows Phone 8 based Lumia smartphones, Nokia has all the right to consider going with Windows as its new tablet OS. It has a massive Windows Phone user base that would more than likely trust the company's tablet offering better than others.

Speaking to the Australian Financial Review, Elop said the "opportunity for companionship is something that any user is looking for," before he went on to talk about the integrated experience of a Lumia 920 and a Windows Tablet, PC and even Xbox. He did however attempt to put a stop to rumors of a new tablet launch at the Mobile World Congress later this month by saying, "We have made no decision or announced anything."
