Nokia bigwig of design and all things sexy, Marko Ahtisaari says “We are working on it.”

Ahtisaari, creator of the curvaceous N9 says that the tablet category is “interesting” for Nokia. Ahtisaari revealed that  he is spending a third of his time on the Nokia tablet. Ahtisaari wants the Finnish giant to find a “different approach to the numerous rivals,” such as the new iPad and Galaxy Tablets. Nokia’s chief of design spoke openly about a possible tablet in a Finnish magazine interview.
