A bigwig at Nokia has confirmed that the Finnish phone giant will indeed be producing laptops pretty darn soon. According to Tech Digest, Nokia's chief executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said they "don't have to look even for five years from now to see that what we know as a mobile phone and what we know as a PC are in many ways converging."
That's true enough, with computer companies like Acer, Dell and Asus getting into smartphone production. Give it a couple years and they may even be putting the bona fide smartphone manufacturers out of a job, as they engineer increasingly powerful processors designed for mobile phones and with a computer pedigree.
Wonder how Nokia laptops will look though, as we haven't particularly bowled over by the aesthetics of, say, the recently announced Acer smartphones. Do production values cross over well between the smartphone and PC industries?
