Read somewhere that its designed and manufactured by foxconn and licensed to Nokia.

And seriously... When I glanced at the pictures with the screen off I could barely tell the difference between this and the iPad Mini.

And that video "bar the terrible music" doesn't try to differentiate between the two at all.

The bit at the end "Thinking Ahead" I think it was. That got me. 
It is a nice looking device but definitely isn't something new or forward thinking.

They must be pretty keen to get sued by Apple over the design, it looks just like an iPad but without a front button. That said, it looks great though.

I don't believe Apple has a design patent on "silver rectangle with black screen and rounded corners", not for lack of trying.

I know they have the software patent for rounded corners however...

Looks nice, good price (reported as US$249?), pity there is no SD card but I can live with 32GB, just leaves the question of battery life with an Intel processor? Anyone have any experience of Intel vs Arm?

I am using an ASUS Transformer with Intel proc and it is fast and battery life is pretty good.

Looks interesting, the Moorefield SoC in here looks fairly competitive with Snapdragon 801/805, so looks like a decent product for the price (even with S810 likely coming on the scene around the time this releases).

It'll be interesting where/how far Nokia goes with this. This tablet is completely independant/divorced from Microsoft.

It's only a small step to a handset.  

The Jolla guys are making a handset now and there's a rumour they might be keen to work with Nokia to put the Sailfish OS onto the tablet or perhaps any other mobile device.

I'd say watch this space.  I have gut feeling we haven't seen the last of the Nokia name on a mobile phone.
