Nokia, others to follow Apple in tablet push
The world's top cellphone maker, Nokia, is working on its own Internet tablet, scheduled to reach stores later this year, a technology sector analyst said on Tuesday.
Analyst said in addition to Nokia also many other handset and PC vendors like Samsung Electronics and HP are set to follow Apple's move into a new category of devices between PCs and smartphones.
Over the weekend, Apple sold more than 300,000 iPads on the tablet computer's first day in stores, a strong showing that roughly matched Wall Street forecasts and mirrored the iPhone's debut in 2007.
"Right now the supply chain is being primed up for a fall release. It has to be on the shelf by September-October to meet demand for the holiday window," said Ashok Kumar, analyst with Rodman and Renshaw.
