We’re told that the large majority of Nokia’s focus with its tablet is on a battery-equipped cover. Nokia will release a special cover for the tablet that envelops it like a book. Clicking into place, the cover provides a keyboard and a kickstand for the tablet. Nokia has also built a battery into the cover that can be used to power the tablet once it runs low on energy. Two USB ports on the case will also provide additional connectivity.
Sounds like a creative idea, especially that it acts as an additional battery. But this cover is the “large majority” of Nokia’s focus? Shouldn’t it be, you know, on the tablet itself?
This is interesting, and I certainly want to keep my eyes out for it.
I think the reason that they’re focusing largely on the battery/keyboard is because they are adopting tablet specs off of existing tablets. I mean, the Surface isn’t totally broken, just misguided.
But then again, Asus already has the transformer series tablets with battery-keyboard combo, and those are fucking great. So, I don’t know that Nokia has much to gain in this realm.
I'm Erik. I think my life is cool so I write about it here for all the world to see. I'm proud to have been a fighting sioux before the logo was retired, and I will always call myself a fighting sioux. I tend to post pictures and whatnot about lacrosse, Fighting Sioux, the University of North Dakota, Pokemon, and Star Wars. I tend to "like" posts about technology and other generally funny things. That is to say that this blog is about what I'm thinking about at any given time. I try to keep posts happening every day. But if you take a look at my blog page, you probably already know this.
