Few days ago, it was revealed that Nokia would launch its first tablet based on Windows RT version in September 2013. Reportedly, the tablet will be stuffed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 4G LTE connectivity is also rumored. Expect Nokia tablet to be unveiled on September 26.
Now according to sources close of to The Verge, Nokia tablet is real and should be announced in September. The tablet is codenamed Vanquish, as per US-based technology site. Moreover, there is a chance to see Nokia's first tablet to be available on AT&T.
More proof of Nokia made tablet surfaced just a short while ago, when an alleged image of Vanquish leaked on Chinese site Digiwo. It's a Red colored tablet with Verizon logo, Windows RT and 4G LTE mentioned at the rear back.
The look and form factor of the tablet remind of Nokia's cancelled tablet running on Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. That particular model was canned because Nokia realized that it would make sense to come up with Window 8 Pro edition. It is not clear whether Nokia is building two different models or just one tablet device with built-in Qualcomm processor.
Late last year, The Verge reported that Nokia was considering a 10.1-inch tablet with battery equipped cover. It was primarily targeted at Microsoft's Surface RT tablet. Here's an excerpt from the original story published on December 24, 2012 in The Verge.
"We're told that the large majority of Nokia's focus with its tablet is on a battery-equipped cover. Nokia will release a special cover for the tablet that envelops it like a book. Clicking into place, the cover provides a keyboard and a kickstand for the tablet. Nokia has also built a battery into the cover that can be used to power the tablet once it runs low on energy. Two USB ports on the case will also provide additional connectivity. We understand that the main tablet will have a 10-hour capacity with fast charging that boosts the battery capacity to 50 percent in a short period of time".
Since then, different versions of Nokia tablet appeared at different point of time. Suspense is still intact in reference to Nokia Windows running tablet. Why Nokia would like to adopt Windows RT version, when Microsoft himself failed to sell enough Windows RT powered Surface tablet. Recently, Asus along with HTC and Dell have scrapped their upcoming Windows RT run tablets. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
