Nokia next-gen N810 tablet

Nokia has made announcements about its next-generation Internet tablet based on the company's N810 device, according to a Wednesday report covering discussions regarding the company's Linux-based Maemo operating system. While there is no device release yet, the next-gen tablet promises to bring with it cellular data connectivity over the HSPA 3G network, a faster Ti OMAP3 processor and built-in high-definition cameras.

Thus far, the N810 requires a wireless network to access the Internet via its Wi-Fi module, although an N810 WiMAX version is available in markets where the wireless high-speed broadband service is available, and therefore outside of North America. As with the current tablets, Nokia will stick to the Linux operating system and support the Maemo open source development platform for Internet tablets. The company will push for Trolltech Labs to support both the Qt and GTK GUIs in the future to break away from fragmentation.

No release dates are known for the device, as Nokia simply says it will be released when it's ready.
