Nokia to enter laptop industry

Usually we hear of a computer manufacturer making the plunge into the mobile phone industry, not the other way around. Nokia decided to break the mold. The company’s CEO, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, said during an interview to the Finnish national broadcast YLE that Nokia is "looking very actively at this opportunity."

Kallasvuo also spoke about the progressive convergence between cell phones and computers. We’ve seen Acer make the transition, and with other manufacturers following suit it seems this is becoming a popular trend. It’s been rumored that Nokia would make this leap for some time now, and with the recent confirmation from the company’s big chief, it seems this rumor turned into fact.
