Expect for Lumia 920, Nokia has not been doing any big thing in the market for quite sometime and is not trying to match up with the sales of Galaxy and iPhone devices. However, seems like the company has entered an agreement with Microsoft and Qualcomm for a 10 inch tablet, which is in the pipeline.
According to a Digitimes report citing Taiwanese supply chain sources, Nokia is planning on resuming work on a 10 inch tablet powered by Windows RT, which could become a competitor to the full-sized Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy Note 800 and Google Nexus 10 to name a few.
Unlike the Windows 8 Pro OS, which is made for Intel powered tablets, Windows RT is for the traditional tablet experience, powered by an ARM-supported processor. The unnamed Nokia tablet is speculated to be launched in at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 slated to be held in Barcelona in February.
Nokia has been planning to launch a 10 inch Windows RT tablet in Q1 2013, but due to the launch of software giant's Surface tablet and other Windows RT tablets, the Finnish tech giant has to stop working on its tablet offering and focus on smartphones.
With Qualcomm being involved, analysts and tech experts assume that the tablet will incorporate a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, which should give it some powerhouse performance. Further, if Nokia prices the tablet at $399 (approx. Rs 21,900), it would be a huge contendor to the iPad and Nexus 10.
