For quite a few months now, we’ve heard reports of Nokia working on a Windows 8 tablet (originally RT, then reportedly they went with full 8.x), though up until now we have never seen one.
For well over a year now there have been murmurings and rumors that Nokia is working on a Windows 8 tablet with little to show for it. The prototype images we got last month is here.
Now, two images have come forth showing what is reportedly a Verizon-branded Nokia tablet with Windows 8.1 RT on board. The device appears to be labelled with “RT” suggesting that this is not a full Windows 8 Pro tablet, though there are too many caveats here to reach any firm conclusions. For instance, could Nokia haveboth RT and Pro devices both being tested as options for carriers and retail channels?
The leaked photos of the Windows 8.1 RT by Digi-Wo:
Reported specifications of the device:
- 10.1-inch 1080p full HD 5-point multi-touch display with wide viewing angle
- 2.15 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
- 32GB of built-in storage
- Detachable keyboard similar to surface Touch/Type Cover
- Built battery in the keyboard
- Micro HDMI
- USB 3.0
- LTE support
- Cyan or Red color option
Nokia is expected to reveal the tablet in September for a mid October release, along the same time as when Windows 8.1 RT is released. Later in November, Nokia’s first “phablet” phone with a 1080P display of 5-inches or greater is expected to be announced in conjunction with Windows Phone 8 GDR3.
We are investigating for most updated and trusted information.
