DigiTimes research reports that Nokia is planning to release a tablet-PC by Q4 2010.

With the recent success of tablet-PCs, it should be no surprise the world’s largest mobile phone manufactuer is jumping the gun as well. According to a DigiTimes research Nokia is currently working on an ARM-based tablet-PC to be release in Q4 2010.

Talking with upstream component makers, the analyst pointed out that Nokia has already completed about 100 engineering samples ready for testing. The tablet PC’s panel size will be either 7- or 9-inch and manufactured by Foxconn International Holdings (FIH), the Hong Kong-listed handset subsidiary of Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), the analyst noted.

The tablet will run on a Linux based MeeGo operating system, and will carry the model number Z500 at launch.
