Nokia Tablet Imminent? Tabco presents…not just another tablet.

| July 7, 2011 | 63 Replies

Someone tipped us info that will be presented in this post yesterday, but since twitter wouldn’t find the account they mentioned, I just dismissed it.

We got the tip again, this time via crisscross who points us to a VERY interesting video. Lots of techy-geek references there.

Now do you remember the disappearance of the account WeAreMeeGo?

There’s a similar named account up. http://twitter.com/#!/WeAreTabCo

It may just be a coincidence, but some popular MeeGo folk follow that account too (and this is just from the small selection of who I follow, there are probably more). It might not be Nokia at all. There’s equally huge likelihood of us following similar non-Nokia related things.

It all seems to be a very clever, very elaborate viral campaign. Not unlike stunts Nokia would pull before. If you have an ounce of fun in you you might find it entertaining.

Focus group and their tablets. Listen how they discuss all the competition. iPad, MS laptops, PadFone (OOH listen to the dig on their CEO), Xoom and all the other android tablets. Darn I hope this isn’t HP.

  • Lots of swiping
  • ‘The user interface is fantastic’
  • ‘this is the new android’
  • ‘i’ve researched tablets and honestly this is entirely different’ <<Well HP WebOS tablet and BB Playbook tablets are NOT entirely different to all the other tablets.
  • ‘Google couldn’t do this…this is Way more Apple than google’
  • Guy goes to rip of the name tag of who makes it. It’s a little bit long for HP.

This video has subtitles in multiple languages.

Tabco at WWDC.

Forget the fruit!

 

Cheers crisscross

  • MeeGo swipy tablet?
  • MS Windows 8 tablet?
  • HP touchpad?
  • New BlackBerry Playbook?
  • It’s NOT any of the Androids.
Ah, I do love a good mystery.
Cheers for the tip, crisscross and others I’ve missed.
Oh, one last thing. Who is the guy who doesn’t want just another tablet? He says there’s really one properly successful tablet, right? The iPad. Everything else? Just another forgetable 201st tablet? Who said that? Oh that’s right, Nokia’s Stephen Elop.

From FAQ

 

Wouldn’t it be easier just to launch the product normally instead of going through all this marketing hoopla?

Well, sure, but then we would have a bunch of time left over prior to our launch and who knows what trouble we’d get in then!

About Our Product

When will TabCo launch its product?

During a month when the weather is really warm…

Why are you launching a tablet? Isn’t that kind of a stupid move when the market is saturated?

It would be if our product was like all those other products out there. It isn’t. (Meh, if it’s WebOS, it is)

OK, what makes it so darn special?

A lot of things. The UI, for one is like nothing else out there. It is predictive and draws its inspiration from the semantic web. The desktop is different, almost a canvas that gives you extensive flexibility to organize your life and work. I could go on but my marketing people would be pissed.

How much will the TabCo tablet cost?

It will cost you less than a bottle of 2010 Bordeaux from a first growth producer.

What kind of OS are you running on?

An Aha! OS. We think you’ll like it.

UPDATE: if this means anything…

    all this talk of it being Nokia’s Meego tablet seems wierd and not likely when they have time and again said they are only relwasing one Meego device (at least this year)… seems more likey to me that its some other manufacturer or not meego, but i sure hope i am wrong.

    Maybe they’re just.. TabCo.. A new company.. lol

    arm dual-core running harmattan would be awesome.

    Just updated my blog. Found a Nokia engineer talking about the ‘aha moment’, he works at the Research branch of the Silicon Valley Nokia, near SanFran that was mentioned by TabCo as a place where a milestone happened. Etc… As mentioned above the domain was registered near Redmond, Windows 8 running tablet?…

    Another idea just came to my mind? It could be very well related to Nokia, but not being from Nokia itself…

    In some news about the giant layoffs in Nokia it was mentioned that in Finland, Nokia will sport some support programs for startups for laid off employees.

    Maybe TabCo consists of ex-employees from these layoffs coming from the Nokia MeeGo teams…

    could also be someone like Amazon or Tom Tom?

  8. I quickly realizеd though that phentermine
    could not be taken everyday. By far the most disturbing
    side effect duгing the first month of phentermine was the feeling that my thrοat was swelling closed.
    It would comе on early afternoon and be gonne by morning at first, but
    after a couple weeks, I would ωake up with a red nose.

    Here is my blog post; taking phentermine 37.5 twice day
