Nokia, LG Electronics, Sony Mobile Communications To Stick With The Tablet Market

/ 6 years ago


According to an article posted by Digi Times, Nokia, LG Electronics and Sony Mobile Communications are more inclined to stick with the tablet sector rather than with smartphones. Of course this does not mean we are not going to see anymore smartphones from the latter.

Nokia plans to expand its tablet range, after the initial release of the 10.1-inch Lumia 2520 tablet, by releasing an 8-inch model, the Lumia 2020, in the first quarter of 2014. The Lumia 2520 and Lumia 2020 both target the mid-range to high-end segment.

LG has announced that it will begin marketing its new tablet, the LG G Pad 8.3, in Taiwan on November 25 with a suggested retail price of $335 / €289 / £207. Sony Mobile is also expected to release more tablets in 2014 after launching its Xperia Tablet Z in 2013, targeting the high-end tablet segment, while China-based Huawei and ZTE have been stepping up their cooperation with telecom operators to promote entry-level and mid-range tablets.

Others such as HTC, Motorola Mobility and BlackBerry have announced that they will remain firmly focused on smartphones. However, since a number of vendors including Acer, Asustek Computer, Lenovo, and Samsung Electronics have already launched tablets with price tags below $200 / €149 / £124, competition in the tablet segment will be stronger compared to the smartphone sector.
