Nokia readies Abu Dhabi tablet launches -

Microsoft subsidiary Nokia will introduce six products at a conference in Abu Dhabi in a bit to spoil Apple’s expected launch of an iPad tomorrow.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the six devices includes a tablet computer and some “phablets” – what a horrid word.

Stephen Elop – tipped by some as a replacement for CEO Steve Ballmer – will host the event.

The tablet Nokia will show off is expected to include LTE and that might give it a chance to compete with Apple.

Nokia, Microsoft must be hoping, will give it some momentum in the market for tablets following its disastrous launch of the Surface RT.
