Rumours about a Nokia tablet have been kicking around for years. But it appears that Espoo is now finally ready to pull the wrappers from its new slate, with a slew of leaked specs and a potential release date slipping out online.
Unsurprisingly, Nokia’s forthcoming tablet will cram in Windows RT 8.1, sticking with Microsoft despite the well-documented failure of its Surface RT tablets.
As well as that somewhat unfairly maligned OS, Nokia is including a Full HD 10.1-inch display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 processor and 32GB of storage space.
The slate’s capacity is likely to be much less in reality, however, when taking into account Windows RT’s hefty footprint.
Elop and co are also set to go with the same detachable keyboard approach that Microsoft took with its Surface RT.
The keyboard will also cram in an additional battery to keep things ticking over while hammering out email and writing up word docs.
The new Windows slate is expected to take a bow next month, with Nokia and Microsoft clearly keen to take on the inevitable rush of new tablets around the same time.
Apple and Amazon look set to follow Google by revealing new tablets in September too.
