Nokia Tablet Update: Windows RT Version Killed in Favor of Windows 8 OS

By Vivek

    Nokia launched quite a number of phones recently which were all budget friendly devices. Lumia 925 has not yet hit the market so far but it belongs to the upper mid range category. Not only that the most hyped and leaked device from Nokia call Nokia EOS aka Nokia 909 is also yet to make its debut soon.

    Leaving beside the smartphone section, now Nokia is reportedly said to come up with a tablet that would run on the same Windows 8 OS. Previously the Finnish mobile manufacturer was reported making a tablet running on the Windows RT Operating System.


    Now The Verge reports say that their close source who is associated with Nokia informed them about the cancellation of the Windows RT featuring tablet in favor of the new tablet that would run on full fledged Windows 8 OS. In fact, if the report turns out to be true, that would be a better move from Nokia. The bottom line obviously means, Nokia tablet will come with Windows 8 and the Windows RT has been canceled.

    Perhaps, Nokia tablet news has come online after a long time and it is evident that other projects might have come in its way, like Lumia 925, Nokia Asha and other low end Nokia devices and the superphone like Nokia EOS. However Nokia is likely to have a real time impact on the tablet world and obviously the competition will be even worse when it narrows down to the tablets featuring the Windows 8 OS.

    Although, the original Nokia Windows RT tablet prototype was shown running on a Tegra 3 1.3 GHz quad-core chip with 2GB RAM, HDMI-OUT, USB Port, LTE support, and SIM card slot. The model name for the scrapped device is nVidia P1001.

    So far the news was just about Nokia dumping the Windows RT tablet, but now alleged images of the the same tablet have also surfaced on a Korean forum recently that reveals a 10-inch tablet running Microsoft's Windows RT operating system. Five images posted to a Naver Cafe forum dedicated to games also show a charging port. The confusion creating part is that the the user who posted the images claims that he "got it from someone who works at Nokia" as a gift.

    Getting a device like that in a gift actually is like getting a limited edition device. However, Lucky guy it seems! However, at least we got to see the images of the device that Nokia killed.

    Here below in the slides are the 5 images of the limited edition images of the Nokia tablet running on Windows RT OS.
