Nokia files patent for N8-like tablet

• 16/03/2011

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has published a patent filing that was made by Nokia in May of 2010.  The patent drawings illustrate a Tablet device that bears an extremely strong resemblance to Nokia’s N8 handset.

The drawings are by no means detailed, but what can be seen is a 3.5mm headphone jack, and several additional ports on the device’s top.  We are assuming one of those ports is an HDMI-out port.

Will this product ever see the light of day?  Hard to say since Nokia’s announcement on February 11th has likely put a halt to many projects that were in the pipeline.
