The rumor around Nokia making a tablet powered by Windows RT is not new in town. We've been hearing about Nokia's Full HD tablet for quite some time. It is said that Nokia and Microsoft are all set to unveil the device later this month. Microsoft will announce a successor to disastrous Surface tablet in September 23, followed by anticipated launch of Lumia 1520 in September 26.
There is no doubt that Nokia would not peruse its ambition by not venturing into tablet market. Now, the Finnish giant is a part of world's biggest software company, and Microsoft has a right to use Nokia the way it wanted. Even if Microsoft failed to make dent in the tablet market with Surface RT 2, the Windows maker always have Nokia as a hardware backing. Nokia's forthcoming Windows RT tablet would cost $499 in the US market. The latest press shot published by Paul Thurrott at WinSuperSite is keeping consumer's interest in Nokia's upcoming Windows RT tablet.
Multiple reports say that the tablet would have a 10.1-inch Full HD display. Moreover, the device is said to be powered by ARM-based quad-core Qualcomm 8974 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM (expandable). Being known for making superb Camera phones; Nokia made tablet would have a 6.7-mega pixel rear facing camera. It is largely believed that the Windows RT-based Nokia tablet will have a feature "outdoor readability", and an accessory that acts as a multi-function cover with keyboard with bundled battery. 4G LTE connectivity is also rumored to be a part of Nokia's fancy tablet.
The question arises whether to get Nokia made Windows RT tablet or Microsoft's rumored Windows RT powered Surface RT 2 tablet. Both tablet devices are expected to be launched later this month. Even the prices would be same - $499. Industry insiders believe that neither Nokia made tablet nor Surface RT 2 could succeed at this price. Apple is already prepping to launch updated iPad 5 alongside the iPad Mini 2 in the month of October. When companies like Asus have already launched affordable hybrid devices (Transformer Book RT100); it would be a tough job for Microsoft to convince buyers to purchase Windows RT powered tablets.
