The pill market has been in a bizarre place over the previous yr and a half. It noticed a bump in gross sales for the reason that pandemic began, but it surely’s finally in a troublesome spot. This, nonetheless, isn’t stopping Nokia from launching one other pill onto the market. The corporate simply posted a tweet promoting a brand new Nokia pill set to launch in only a few weeks.
The tweet didn’t say a lot about this pill
There isn’t a lot to collect from the tweet, because it was being adorably ambiguous. It confirmed the nook of a wall with an archaic T9 Nokia telephone standing up and going through the viewers. Across the nook, we see the aspect of a pill standing up.
On the wall, we see peak marks for each of the units; nonetheless, as a substitute of peak, they point out years. The older telephone was marked 2017 with the pill being marked 2021. The tweet says “All the pieces you’d count on from a Nokia telephone in a pill.”
Below the tweet, we get the launch date for the pill, which is October sixth. Which means there’s not a lot time to attend.
This might level to a rugged pill
The tweet says, “every thing we’d count on from a Nokia telephone in a pill”, and it’s fascinating that the corporate selected the type of an older Nokia bar telephone, somewhat than a newer Android-powered one. Again within the early to mid-2000s, Nokia telephones had been praised for being powerful and durable, so this means that this pill may be powerful and durable.
On a sensible degree, this could possibly be a very sensible transfer. These days, persons are principally shopping for telephones to be their essential media consumption machines, not tablets.
Nonetheless, individuals in numerous industries might use this new Nokia pill for enterprise functions. Development corporations, factories, warehouses, any trade that will completely destroy a Galaxy Tab or an iPad may benefit from a troublesome pill.
This new Nokia pill would be the firm’s second ever
Most smartphone OEMs which have existed for various years have dipped a toe into the pill market. Samsung, LG, Apple, Huawei, Sony, and lots of extra corporations have and/or had made tablets. Surprisingly, Nokia has solely launched one pill thus far. The corporate launched the Nokia N1 again in 2015. This in fact isn’t factoring in any of the Lumia tablets it launched beneath Microsoft possession.
The Nokia N1 was an Intel Atom-powered 7.9-inch pill that ran Android 5.0 Lollipop. It had 2GB of RAM, and 32 GB of onboard storage, and a 5,300 mAh battery. In case you haven’t heard of this machine, it’s okay, it was solely launched in China.
The truth that Nokia marketed its new pill to English audiences signifies that we’d get it within the states. It launches in only a few weeks, so be prepared.
