Nokia to Launch Phablet, Says Company Insiders

Samsung take note, next generation Lumia coming soon.

This cryptic tweet sent August last year by Chris Weber, Nokia’s current Nokia EVP of Global Sales and Marketing, drew quite a bit of speculation from tech pundits and Nokia fans alike. The reference to "note" led some commentators to speculate that Nokia might be thinking into breaking into the phablet market. If you had read this tweet in 2012 like everyone else, you might have raised your eyebrows and even chortled at what seems to be a case of too much reading in between the lines.

Now fans can be more expectant as The Financial Times reports that Nokia aims to "revitalize its smartphone business with flagship launches this year". This includes plans to unveil a supersized phone and other new devices. Insiders say that the most innovative move of the company this year would be to work on a device that could function as both a phone and tablet, with specifications that would best the popular Samsung Galaxy Note. Insiders also mention that Nokia plans to launch the first Nokia Lumia smartphone with advanced Pureview imaging technology. Possibly to be launched in July, the smartphone will sport a 40-megapixel camera. Other devices to watch out for are a lighter and upgraded Lumia 920 and a lower-priced version in autumn. If the rumor mill is true, this event will mark Nokia’s first foray into a market dominated by Samsung and Apple.

It’s no question that many Nokia fans would welcome a "Nokia Note". Before Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 launch, enthusiasts were already floating around ideas of what they would like to see from the Finnish smartphone maker. Perhaps no other Nokia concept phone idea around this time became as popular as the bright purple Nokia Lumia OneNote 5.5” phablet created by Ibrahim Sujau. Apart from a quad core 1.6 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM, up to 64 GB of storage, a microSDHC card slot, 12-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, and HSPA+ connectivity, Sujau’s concept also included business phone features that would make professionals salivate.
