Nokia is looking to launch a Windows 8 tablet in June 2012

Nokia is prepared to launch a Windows 8-based tablet and is aiming for a June 2012 release.

This news comes courtesy of one of the company's executives in France who spoke to a newspaper, Le Echoes, about the tablet and mentioned the launch date along with the fact that the tablet will run on Windows 8.

Paul Amsellem told Le Echoes, "In June 2012, we will have a tablet that runs on Windows 8." This maybe a small tidbit, however it was echoed by Stephen Elop weeks ago when he spoke about Nokia looking to release a tablet that took advantage of the "new tablet opportunity coming." It's reasonable to assume that Elop was also referring to Windows 8.
