Windows Rt Tablets

The rumor mills have been abounding for a while about the possible developments of a Nokia tablet. However from the latest round of information that has come to hand, this appears to be more than just rumor. Things could materialize as imminent as the next Mobile World Congress. DigiTimes have reported that Microsoft, Qualcomm and Compal Electronics are currently working away at the development of a 10” Nokia tablet, even as we speak. The Nokia tablet rumors started earlier this year with speculations that the Finnish mobile giant could be opting for a dual-core Qualcomm SoC. Even the head of Nokia’s design team Marko Ahtisaari revealed that he was spending a lion’s share of his time designing an upcoming tablet. Initially it was even speculated that 200,000 units of the chip would be shipped out. However, after Microsoft launched the Surface tablet, Nokia reportedly went slow with their plans.

If any of these rumors is to be believed then it makes ample sense that Nokia would be looking at the World Mobile Congress as the probable date for the launch of their tablet. They would either way have very little presence at the CES next month and the MWC makes a logical option for them. At this point, however, there is no word on the exact specifications of the tablet. Sources have added that AT&T is planning to start offering a Nokia tablet next year. With the slowness of absorption of the Windows 8 and RT operating systems in the market, the launch of a brand new Nokia tablet could be just the thing that Microsoft had been praying for. This can certainly provide a boost to their prospects.
