Eldar: 4 Windows Phone 7 Nokia Phones in R&D + 1 tablet

Eldar Murtazin, famous Nokia fan (joke) tweeted that Nokia has 4 Windows Phone 7 in R&D. He also notes a tablet which he presumes to have Windows 8. This comes by way of wmpoweruser who reckons chassis 1 will have 1GHz whilst chassis 2 will have lower end 800MHz with a resistive screen. Yay! Nokia is bringing back those old gems. Heck, let’s have nHD displays too. I hope there are no resistive displays on Nokia’s mid.

In terms of tablets, the story flying around the web is that Nokia’s supposedly excluding Windows, opting instead for MeeGo.

From Reuters:

“That could include Microsoft, it may not,” the source said.

Well, as for now, the only tablet related talk from a Nokia source has mentioned “Microsoft” – even if it is to be ambiguous.

MS is supposedly not going to be ready for tablet market till late 2012 and that Nokia tablets based on Windows will have FULL windows (8) – not Windows Phone. << Via Arun << via @agynther

Love or hate Eldar, sometimes he is right (on equal maybe more or less occasions he is wrong. E.G. expecting new UI in PR2.0 and trolling about it) Though some have commented that make enough predictions you’re bound to get one right. e.g. Nokia discussing Windows Phone which he got really slated for.

Cheers farooq for reminder (super busy this week, can’t get to web so often)
