+ - Nokia had production ready web tablet 13 years ago, killed just before launch->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Sad story: Nokia created M510 tablet running EPOC (later to be renamed as Symbian) thirteen years ago. It was fully production ready and they produced thousand units just before it was cancelled because market research proved there wasn't demand for the device. The team got devices for themselves and the rest were destroyed and the team was fired. The lesson: Don't try to be pioneer if you're relying on market research studies."
