In an interview with Financial Times, outgoing Nokia Chairman  Jorma Ollila revealed a few details of Nokia’s roadmap, and this included infor mation that Nokia is releasing some interesting Nokia devices. Top among them was the reaffirming that Nokia is sill going the Tablet way, phones and hybrid. His words below hint to something like a phone-tablet blend.

Tablets are an important one, so that is being looked into, and there will be different hybrids, different form factors in the future.

The rumours about the Nokia tablet have been going on for some time now, and its expected that Nokia will release it as soon as Windows 8 is available. The tablet of choice being the Nokia Coffee Tablet, taking the Nokia Lumia 800 design. The phablet, coined from the middle ground device, the Samsung Galaxy Note that took the best of both worlds and carved a niche of its own in a daring move by Samsung took the world by storm, got many reactions and got accepted. We have since seen more 5 inch devices from LG and Panasonic, a sign that phablets have come to ba accepted for their capabilities, particularly for those wishing to have as much screen real estate off their smartphones.

So lets wait and see what Nokia pulls off their sleeves in the Q2-Q3 region. What do you think?
