Nokia Design Chief Working on Tablet
While there are still no details per se about alleged the tablet--not even a guarantee that it will run Windows 8, although that’s a foregone conclusion at this point--a product launch is widely expected before the end of the year.

To add more fuel to the fire, Nokia design chief Marko Ahtisaari just told a Finnish magazine that he’s spending about a third of his time on a Nokia tablet, according to a Reuters report. More interestingly, Ahtisaari indicated that Nokia will be taking a different approach to competing with the iPad than others in the market.
One can’t help but wonder what that means, exactly. The “different approach” could be an innovative game-changer, but it’s probably more likely that Nokia is going to try and find a niche and a price point that lets it get a toehold in the market instead of competing directly with the slate (pun!) of solid competitors out there already.
