We just happened to stumble upon a brilliantly made design of a Nokia tablet running Windows 8 and we thought, why not gaze through the crystal ball. We couldn't stop wondering about what could happen if this tablet did come into existence in the near future. But wait, before we get our thinking hats on, we’ll mention an important development. As reported by My Nokia Blog, an interesting article was spotted in a Finnish newspaper “Kauppalehti Optio” that spoke about Nokia working on a revolutionary new device. Could be a phone, could be a tablet, could be anything. But here’s what the article spoke about. Basically, Nokia Design Chief, Marko Ahtisaari has been working in full swing on Nokia’s upcoming revolutionary new device (or technology) that could change the way user interfaces currently exist.



With this device, “the user does not need to bend down and push their finger on the screen.” Are we seeing augmented reality? Are we seeing something similar to Sony’s floatation touch technology? Details are too crude to signify anything substantial, but here’s what he had to say about Apple’s iPhone and iPad design. He mentioned that they have been poorly designed. He also likened them to a poorly designed house where the road from the kitchen into the dining room is always going through the front door. Come to think of it, he’s probably talking about switching between apps and multitasking out here. He also mentioned that Android and Symbian were somewhat like doll houses, which means that you have your own furniture and you can use only that. As compared to that a WP7 interface is more natural.

While he may be right in his own regard, we would love to see a design like this in the near future. A brilliant polycarbonate outer shell, a crazy fluid UI, Microsoft Office integration and probably a lot more, would definitely make this tablet something worthy enough to look out for. A tablet by Nokia is definitely in the pipeline. Whether it’s going to be like this, isn’t something that we are really sure of right now. But since its all speculation, why not choose what you would want to see in Nokia’s next tablet! Let us know in the comments section below.
