6" Nokia Lumia phablet front panel pictured

6We've heard rumors of a phablet in the works from Nokia for a while now. Back in May we even saw a (blurry) glimpse of what appeared to be a large-screened Nokia device, expected to see the light of day as the Lumia 1030. This latest leak which supposedly comes from a factory floor in China...

Android? I think, if Nokia was making Symbian AND Android together, everyone would be happy? And maybe MeeGo? They can't use Android because they wouldn't be allowed to sell Nokia Maps and other services in their phones because they would be just another OEM to Google, Google wouldn't allow any service that doesn't go through Google (and makes Google money). So, Nokia would have to fire more workers. It looks like Microsoft is still a better option, gives Nokia more freedom (but that's not too much). Looks like, now, US companies have all three major OSes and all the maps. Not too strange when you remember Prism, eh?

A 7 inch tablet with windows 8(not RT or Pro)is a great idea and a better choice of tablets than nexus 7. RT = android = ios(ipad). With hack/jailbreak of the RT, RT is gonna be better than ipad and nexus, if is all about freedom to install 3th party apps/software.

Nokia's Q2 2013 earnings are out and it's clear that the company's road to recovery is nowhere near over. The Finnish manufacturer posted an operating loss of 115 million (roughly $151 million) from 5.695 billion ($7.46 billion) in revenue over the quarter, which is a little below expectations. Nokia expected its Devices & Services division, which has traditionally been its largest, to be in the red this quarter, but its small loss of 33 million ($43.25 million) is lower than its prediction.

"Jolla continues the work started by the Nokia N9 with the MeeGo version Harmattan. After Nokia abandoned their participation in the MeeGo project, the directors and core professionals from Nokia's N9 team left the company and formed Jolla in an attempt to continue the N9's legacy" - Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolla

1. FIRE ELOP.
2. Acquire Jolla. Jolla is a company, a startup, by former Nokia employees that are reinventing Meego into Sailfish OS. Sailfish along with Dalvik virtual machine will have support for every Android app. Then Nokia can tie up with Google to have Google Play support in their Sailfish phones. This way Nokia will have a unique OS that will be free of all the drawbacks of Android and will have a large app base through Google Play. They no longer will have to tap into the java app base with the Asha OS and concentrate their energies into add on technologies like Pureview cameras, Puremotion displays, Clearblack technology etc.

Mr Elop MUST be FIRED!!! why wont he Mr Elop hire developers to improve Symbian which they own, as well as Meego which they jointly own with intel, whiles trying out Windows OS as well, the way Samsung is. why wont he Mr Elop have a line of phones running Android OS? with Nokia's SOLID PHONE BUILD, JUST IMAGIN what the demand will be like. But Mr Elop wont, because he has no share in these Companies other than Windows.
SHAME ON YOU MR ELOP!!! SHAME ON YOU!

I think Elop is smart. I would love to buy a Nokia 6" or 7" tablet running Windows 8 Phone. I'd love it even more if it ran the full Windows 8. Then I could leave the computer at home and just take the tablet.

Windows does not support resolutio more than 1280x800 so this will be the bad move if it's not Full HD screen.

A full-HD screen isn't a deal-maker. Oh, and Nokia experimented with a quad-core and found that it drained the battery too fast with minimal performance gains.

you see people, Stephen Elop MUST be FIRED!!! as at 2010 after he retired from Microsoft, he was their 8th largest shareholder and took over from Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, men who championed various marketing strategies ie Symbian and Meego. he understood that to stay in biz you need to flow with the demands of the people. MEEGO today is what BB10 copied 100%, look at their gestures- swipe up to exit, swipe left and right to move to a new page, double tab the screen to wake it up... ALL MEEGO's but Elop killed that plan and converted the remaining N9 designs to lumia 800 which was the first windows phone for nokia. why not maintain these all products if his intention for nokia was genuine?
A. Symbian ltd was acquired by Nokia in 2008 thanks to Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo.
B. Efforts of Intel's Moblin and Nokia's Maemo former projects was merged into one new common project called Meego, thanks again to Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, which featured on the N9, now copied by BB10 developers.
Mr Elop killed these plans and ran Nokia into the ground all because of GREED'' HE WANTS NOKIA'S SHARES TO CRASH SO THEY WILL BE BOUGHT BY WINDOWS!!!!!!!
am using a Lumia 820 and the os cannot in any way be compared to IOS, Android, Symbian or Meego now Tizen.
