nokia-n1-tablet
Although Microsoft has the right to use the "Nokia" name in branding its mobile offerings, there's nothing in the companies' agreement to prevent Nokia from using it on its own line of tablets -- and that, in fact, is what it has decided to do.

Let the gamers beware: If a company doesn't allow publication of reviews prior to the launch of its upcoming blockbuster titles, then it could mean it's not fully confident those reviews would help sales.
