How about some Nokia rumors while we wait for the EOS/Elvis/Zoom/Lumia 1020/Lumia 909? According to this recent report, for which you’ll need a lot of salt, in addition to the “R” folder and skeptical hat, Nokia is not only preparing tablets, but it also might have a truckload of phablets planned. The information comes from an “anonymous” source and its veracity can’t be, for the moment, verified. Treat it accordingly!
Nokia recently trademarked a certain “ZOOM” moniker and apparently, this will be a family of products. As far as tablets are concerned, Nokia is preparing, according to this report, two aluminum-made slates: a 10.5-inch tablet (which is 8.5mm thin), and an 8.5-inch slate. These will be available in green, black, pink, blue, yellow, and white. The Finns are also rumored to pay special attention to the camera on these tablets (hence part of the ZOOM family).
As far as phones are concerned, we have a truckload rumored: Lumia 525 (with a 4.5-inch and Lumia 920-like looks), Lumia 625 (with a 4.6-inch display), Lumia 725 (with a five-inch screen), Lumia 825 (at 5.2-inches), and Lumia 926 (with a 5.5-inch screen). Additionally, the report also talks about 2014 plans, year in which (June mentioned), Nokia might explore the six-seven-inch territory.
The next iteration of Windows Phone will bring support for Full HD resolution, so PPI ratings on these higher screens will be on par with other devices running competing OSes. An additional row of tiles is also rumored. However, we understand that these reports above are far-fetched, so we’ll just keep them under “rumors” for now (and yes, we’re skeptical, not that we didn’t want to see this become a reality).
