A Verizon branded Nokia tablet smiles for the camera! You may remember Nokia’s recent decision to shift their focus on Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone operating system. The company openly opposed Android as a potential direction and chose to team up with Ballmer and the crew. Since the new relationship has taken form, we have seen a handful of rather awesome Lumia smart phones. Devices ranging from the low end to the super flagships like the most recent Lumia 1020. What we haven’t seen from Nokia and its new found OS, is a tablet. A tablet to rule them all! A Lumia tablet! Understandably, the tablet market has been saturated with iPad’s and Galaxies, but it looks as if Nokia may see their chance to swoop in very soon!
