Nokia Created Tablet 13 years back

Here's another story of a tech gadget that arrived before its time.

Nokia created a web-ready tablet running EPOC (later to be renamed as Symbian) thirteen years ago. The tablet was set to go into full production, and they actually built a thousand units just before it was canceled.

The tablet was scrubbed because market research showed there wasn't demand for the device. The team got devices for themselves and the rest were destroyed. The team was then fired.

The lesson: Don't try to be pioneer if you're relying on market research studies.
