Nokia Windows 8 tablet coming

Continuing their BFF relationship, Nokia and Microsoft announced their arrival to the tablet game coming in June of next year. It will be a tablet based on the impending Windows 8 operating system. Nokia has been working on Windows phones for a while now and the company's newish CEO Stephen Elop is former Microsoftie. Can the two companies really change the tablet market when their product will be arriving so long after the iPad (and possibly around the time of the iPad 3)? Or will the tablet market be so established diverse by then that there will be room for everyone?
