Nokia France exec leaks Nokia Windows 8 Tablet

This comes just a few months after Paul Amsellem, Head of Nokia France has let slip that Nokia plans to release a Windows 8 tablet this year which would hopefully rival the likes of the newly released Apple iPad.

The Division Manager was speaking to French publication Les Echos when he made the slip about Nokia's future plans talking not only about the tablet but also where the Nokia Lumia 800 will sit in the Windows Phone 7 product range:

"It's a bit like the equivalent of the BMW 5 Series. We will soon have a full range with a Series 7 and Series 3, and in June 2012, we will have a tablet running Windows 8"
