Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has reiterated the company's plans to target a strong footing within the smartphone market stating no plans for tablets

 

In a frank and open interview Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop has revealed the Finnish phone manufacturer has no current plans to enter the tablet race.

With a number it's key smartphone competitors headlining the tablet market with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Motorola Xoom 2, HTC Flyer and of course the Apple iPad 2, Elop has revealed Nokia remains happy to watch from the sidelines and focus its efforts on its new partnership with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 OS and its latest attempt to tackle the smartphone scene.

"Nokia does not have an exact plan, but we are studying the markets carefully," Elop said of the tablet sector whilst talking with Finnish Television outlet YLE. He added: "Perhaps we will come [to market] one day."
