Thanks to the power of viral videos, a buzz has surrounded Tabco, which some are speculating to be a PR stunt by Nokia, while others are thinking perhaps it could be a whole new company altogether. They seem to be making digs at other tablets and brands, i.e. iPad, Motorola Xoom, Microsoft laptops, ASUS’s Padfone, etc. It even poked fun of the fiasco with Gizmodo and the iPhone 4 at the bar.
Their Twitter account – WeAreTabCo – also sounds similar to the WeAreMeeGo account which has recently been deactivated. Could this be a Nokia MeeGo tablet that we might be seeing? The Nokia N9 was supposed to be the first and last MeeGo device from Nokia, unless they weren’t being totally honest about that.
Taken from their website, their FAQ seems to point that they will be releasing their product during a month that is really warm, which we’re guessing is some time in the summer. It also mentions that it will not be like other tablets, so since we have iOS tablets, Android tablets, webOS tablets, Blackberry tablets, what else is left? I guess we will have to wait and see. If they were attempting viral marketing, we think whoever is behind it is succeeding.
