An anonymous source told Know Your Mobile that Nokia’s MeeGo-based tablet will be launching in the third quarter 2011. As the rumor’s source is unknown and unverified, it must be taken with a grain of salt.
MeeGo’s mobile development progress so far has been somewhat delayed; Nokia had initially promised a MeeGo-powered smartphone by the end of the year, but a smartphone release with the Linux-based operating system has now been postponed into 2011.
The MeeGo OS has been recently demoed on a tablet, but Nokia is expected to add some UI enhancements to create a novel user experience that will add value to the operating system and make it easy for users to use.
The company is also expected to roll out gigahertz and multi-core smartphones in 2011 and 2012.
