Nokia to enter laptop market?

jkOnTheRun reports this story -
Reuters is reporting that Finnish handset giant Nokia has admitted they are considering entering the laptop market.  In an interview in Finland CEO Pekka Kallasvuo was asked if Nokia plans to make laptops and had this response:

“We are looking very actively also at this opportunity…  We don’t have to look even for five years from now to see that what we know as a mobile phone and what we know as a PC are in many ways converging.”

Nokia also reported earlier that they would shrink production and R&D as sales tank, and rapidly shrinking market-share in the smartphone market. Netbook is a growing market, no wonder Nokia wants to get a portion of the pie.
