According to China Times there will be only 5 manufacturers launching Windows 8 WOA (ARM) tablets this year and non of them are Nokia.
Each of the major ARM chipset vendors for Windows 8 WOA could only chose 2 manufacturers at most.
NVIDIA: Lenovo and Asus Texas Instruments: Toshiba Qualcomm : Samsung and HP.
This goes against what we have heard from Ahtisaari, Executive Vice President in Nokia who said already back in March that third of his time is taken up by work on the new tablet.
Also @MS_nerd who is quite known of his Microsoft leaks claimed back in June that Nokia is one of the premier WOA tablet partners.
There isn’t much of other sources yet agreeing with China Times, so lets hope Nokia will be launching it’s tablet before years end. It would certainly be a slap in the face from Microsoft if true.
