Nokia, which dominates the mobile handset market in India and elsewhere, has now been awarded patents for two tablet computers by the US authorities.
Notably, Nokia has recently made it clear that it has no plans to jump into the tablet business.
Interestingly, Nokia had filed for the patents before May 28, 2010, which is almost a year old now. Clearly, the Finnish handset maker had plans for a tablet computer but it seems that it has shelved such plans.
Nokia had shown such flip-flops in earlier occasions also. Earlier this year there were news that Nokia might let go off the MeeGo operating system but during the Mobile World Congress, Nokia announced that it will launch another MeeGo based device by the end of this year.
With smartphones projected to surpass sales of computers, Nokia seems to be focusing on its mobile business.
