Doomed MeeGo tablet revealed with Verizon-bound N9
Taskumuro that has this set of interviews become a history of MeeGo complete with what essentially amounts to confirmation that Nokia was planning on bringing the Nokia N9 with MeeGo to Verizon – and they had a tablet within the works to boot. Would it be nice?
If you’ll have a look back at our original Nokia N9 review from several months ago, you will find that Chris Davies’ assessment of the device (“Seldom are we so reluctant to part with a review unit”) was greater than just a bit leaning towards the positive side. Since the software Nokia’s former MeeGo team were engaged on was – and now and again, still is – so lovely and never like anything available in the market in the present day, now we have to pause and sweetness what could have been had it taken off. One of many items of huge interest here’s the Senna tablet.
This tablet was obviously meant to duplicate the simpler points of the N9 with design cues galore, rounded corners and vast, simple movements in hardware throughout. You have the facility to shoot 1080p video at the back, a ST-Ericsson’s NovaThor U8500-based platform on its innards, and a public version of MeeGo right up front. The user interface is alleged to were essentially similar to the N9, just blown up slightly.
The account also makes it clear that the Senna tablet was presented to Nokia CEO Stephen Elop back in 2010 where it was praised by him initially. Once the MeeGo strategy was stopped entirely, so went the tablet besides. Another of the larger reveals here from Taskumuo is the existence of Nokia model RM-716. This device was essentially the Nokia N9 made for Verizon – but without 4G LTE, it was also doomed to fail before it got off the floor.
As everyone knows, Nokia went with Microsoft’s loving embrace lower than a year ago, bringing forth a group of Windows Phone devices here and there ever since. The latest range of Windows Phone 8 devices from Nokia have generated a lot of interest so far as we have seen, and we’re greater than just a little pumped up about their delivery here within the Autumn of 2012. During this season we’ll likely see big movements in Nokia’s market share up or down – it is all as much as Windows Phone 8 and its ties with Windows 8 – and Microsoft backing the colourful manufacturer up, without a doubt .
