Nokia, a phone company that is often only known for its phones of old, has been turning some heads in the Android phone world as its cookie-cutter Android phones are well supported with major software updates. This support, or more so the lack of support offered by most phone companies, has put the phone maker back into the mobile phone discussions and a possible tablet with this level of software support is exciting.
It will be Nokia’s second-ever tablet and details about it are limited to a teaser Tweet and an upcoming Oct 6th announcement. Of course, Android tablets have struggled to stand out from the crowd and this tablet does not seem to be offering any special features to win over new tablet users, but the extended software support that Nokia offers is nearly unheard of in the current tablet market. Lack of software support is a major reason many do not want to buy a device that should last for years but will only be supported for potentially months.
We have no confirmation that the tablet will receive extended support or any information at this point, but I will be watching the Oct 6th announcement in hopes this might be a future purchase potential.
