Nokia can bring a change in the tablet market with its first Windows 8 tablet. Apple has been dominating the market, Android tablets so far have failed to bring any major change in the market, hope is resting on Windows 8 tablet.
Nokia han not made any official announcements concerning tablet specs, as I was told by a Nokia's spokesman, other than what I wrote and what Marko Ahtisaari has said about it concerning voice recognition, which is quite a good one, I would say.
On one hand I doubt that Nokia or anyone else is going to steal Apple's throne in the tablet world; on the other hand I believe Nokia might come up with something surprising after having taking its good time to enter the tablet market, don't you think so?
"Why did it take Nokia so long to get into the tablet market?"
Honestly, I haven't been able to get to that answer yet. We have discussed many times about how difficult Apple's PR and press service can be; now it seems that Nokia wants to play the same secretive little game, which I find particularly annoying. However, I am still after getting that question properly answered.
I believe a Nokia's tablet has many more possibilities of success than the RIM's Blackberry Playbook.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
