    I wonder if Nokia will make an actual Windows R.T. Tablet-P.C. or a Phablet.

    • Ben A

      cant you see Windows RT = Nokia sirus Lumia tab
      windows phone = Nokia Lumia 1520

  • Vincent Haakmat

    Beautiful, but too expensive for an RT device. Should have been an 8″ device and cheaper and they would have a winner in their hand. Unfortunately this looks DOA. not with the Asus T100 with full Win8 for $350

    • nickcraze

      WTF is wrong with people. The by that logic the Ipad is too expensive for what it offers. Geezus… what do people want? free? this is the problem that Google/Android ecosystem have created. They have created the expectation that devices should be given for free. While many companies lose money on these devices. This is not business logic.

      • Vincent Haakmat

        Win RT was built to compete with Android and iPad tablets, let’s face it. So if you want to compete with them, you need to beat them at their game. I am not talking about apps here, because RT gets no love from devs for apps, so hardware alone will not lure devs to develop, but market share. You can’t get market share by being on average $100 more expensive to the consumer who will compare it with the other flashy tablets on display. I am a Surface owner, so I know what I am talking about, no matter how nice the OS is, if you don’t have apps, and believe me, RT misses a lot of apps, then it is an uphill battle that can only be won by beating them with price. Microsoft needs to create a $1-2B war chest to fight Google and Apple, otherwise in the end it won’t matter

        • Joe_HTH

          LOL! There is only one problem. This is far cheaper than the iPad 4. Do you know what a 32GB iPad 4 with LTE costs? It is $730 dollars. The 16GB version is $630. The 64GB Nokia Sirius with LTE and probably better hardware, is cheaper than the iPad 4′s 16GB model. I might also add the Nokia tablet has full USB 3.0 and MicroSDXC. iPad 4 has neither. So what’s your point?
          You’re getting a far better tablet for a cheaper price. As for apps, there’s nothing Nokia can do about that, but the Windows Store is closing in on 150,000 real tablet apps. So I’m not seeing too much of a problem other than Microsoft released WindowsRT too early.

          • Ben A

            did you read nokia exclusive apps you forgot to add on this nokia tablet. Microsoft had no choice to break into the mobile tablet market. before it gets too late. so that’s why windows RT exists like it or not, its here to stay, even when its merges with windows phone into an one Microsoft mobile OS.

          • Vincent Haakmat

            I think you’re missing my point here Joe_HTH. I have nothing against the features of the tablet, heck I very welcome it. The point I am trying to make is that the average Joe six-pack sees 3 different shiny devices and has $300 to $400 to spend. He doesn’t give a rats ass for USB 3 support and all other extensions. The sweet spot is in the 7-8 device range. Heck even the iPad mini is eating the regular iPad’s lunch. The 10′ screens are most likely to be used for more then just some casual reading, but by those that look to replace their laptop with a lighter device. So for those RT is not much of a choice, since they can’t run QuickBooks or other desktop app (apart from Office 2013). They need to get market share for RT first and then kick up the price.

        • Ben A

          Microsoft has array of devs and nokia exclusive apps will be a big win not only for their tablet, for Microsoft and windows ecosystem and the platform. this will boost the platform, Microsoft already spent billions of R&D and research and advertisement and promotions. windows RT is comparable to android and ios offering and it offers more than what android and ios have, a full office for business, secure os unlike android great for business, some quality apps and growing app store, it takes time for app store to grow, iPad had 1,000 optimized tablet apps by launch and windows tablet launch beat that 2x. and they were all oversized tablet apps. its all about getting the right quality apps that people want that’s what Microsoft already been investing, not crap, its up to developers to make the platform shine, or else its their fault too not just Microsoft, for not making the platform shine. Not about how beautiful the OS is or fliud or how many million oversized phone apps it has, its all about what sets it apart from other tablet rivals such as apples and googles tablets.

          • Vincent Haakmat

            What Microsoft needs to do is pre-install Visual Studio (2012) Express with all their hardware. This will allow more people to write for RT without having to spend an extra penny. Apple has been doing that for years with their MacBook series and see how that as influenced their iStore. MS will weed out the junk apps themselves, but at least let them be built first.

        • Ben A

          to consumers its all about ecosystem and quality services then apps.

        • tomakali

          With the Promise of Windows OS Unification. Why worry about apps now?
          All platforms of Windows[Phone,Xbox,RT,Pro] going to share everything across devices
          Just buy and keep upgrading…

    • Ben A

      why is it to expensive, not for others. this is not DOA. since it not come out yet. so please research, 100,000 apps plus nokia exclusive, keyboard innovation, more nokia features and accessories that sets other windows tablets apart, lite os on an ARM chip it makes sense, running the latest and greatest Snapdragon processor, so the price is right, ASUS T100 is a cheap crappy half assed tablet.

    • donzebe

      Look at the specs.

  • Mikado_Wu

    That is Sexy…… for $350 I am sold.

    • nickcraze

      Go buy a Nexus then and GTFO

      • Ben A

        If he doesn’t like the price
        go buy a cheap rubbery plastic nexus made by Chinese manufacturer and collaborated with scroogle.

    • Ben A

      dont like the price
      go buy a cheap rubbery plastic nexus made by Chinese manufacturer and collaborated with scroogle.

  • Guest

    Darn. I’d been waiting for a Nokia/WIndows tablet for a while. Seemed like a no-brainer for both companies. And this one certainly lives up to my expectations looks wise. But going with WinRT is a buzz kill. And even more so at that price, which is way too high. They’re not going to do well with this. Which is a shame.

    • Ben A

      its not a shame as you think. WinRT is a substet of metro app, not a OS by the way, its Windows RT, this upcoming tablet is no ordinary tablet, its something big, exclusive apps by nokia, growing secure app store windows store, secure os windows rt, free office, Microsoft services, xbox, you get the most out of this value, not android virus shit and quality design and keyboard that you don’t get on ipads and most android tablets and they are going to do well because of Microsoft boost and their promotion like Lumia tv ads etc. , it might not be the best seller, but it will have good and modest sales and probably outsell some crap android tablets even the nexus 10 sequel and it has the right price = business logic not your needs of price, don’t like it feel free to buy other windows tablets, nokia is not stopping you, nokia is embracing the mobile market with smartphones and tablets, they didnt get to do in the past. don’t underestimate windows rt especially Microsoft surface RT’s and Nokias. they are both wise. because the tech market is going mobile, like it or not, the future is not wintel. ARM is catching up, and its catching up FAST.

    • Emily the Strange

      lol and this show you have no idea what you are talking about. 1. using legacy software its mostly useless in desktop mode in small device like this with touch.
      2. how do you expect to have LTE with an Intel device? you can get LTE for sure but it would consume more battery life becuase it needs an additional chipset.
      3. the Price is rice, if you dont like it go buy a cheapo chinese Tablet. you can also get an iPad and see if you can get it cheaper tan this.
      4. you need to use more yoru brain so im sure its useless to reply to someone like you.

      • Guest

        1) Nevertheless it’s the main value proposition of Windows over Android and iOS.
        2) I don’t care about LTE, personally.
        3) The price is only “rice”, which I assume meant “right”, if consumers find it compelling vs competitive alternatives. And yes, like it or hate that now includes some pretty decent $200 tablets
        4) Resorting to ad hominem attacks instead of rational debate just reflects poorly on you.

    • Ruben Verbaan

      You may be right that they won’t sell a lot of these. But we don’t know yet. It will be interesting though. The succes of this tablet or lack thereof will influence MS’s marketing strategy with regard to sticking with the Nokia brand or using Surface or Lumia, etc.

      • Guest

        AFAIK, MS has only secured rights to use Nokia on Asha phones and existing Lumias, not future smartphones or tablets. That’s a concern and could change before the deal is final, but that’s how it stands currently.

        Yes, the price of this device is competitive with iPads. The problem is I don’t think most consumers will see them as equivalents. Agree that marketing sucks, but obviously they were hoping Office was going to be a key differentiator and that hasn’t proved to be the case, at least in the consumer market.
        Not sure what you mean about the 5C and RT route? But I was underwhelmed with it overall. Seems like pricing wise they’re conceding the mainstream market to Android. Might be smart profit wise, but risky. MS may have to do the same with tablets (i.e. focus on just being a leader in enterprise tablets, and leave mainstream commodity stuff to Android).

        • Joe_HTH

          Nope! This tablet will carry the Nokia brand, because the acquisition hasn’t even gone through and won’t until 2014. So until then, it’s business as usual. Even the Lumia 1520 will carry the Nokia brand.

  • uncle_joe

    Oh Wow!! But 499 is too high for an RT device. Come on Nokia, Focus!

    • ricecube88

      nexus 7 , 7 inch with 3g/lte –> 350 $
      this –> 10 inch , 3g/lte, touch type cover -499 $
      get it now?

      • c0urtn3y

        Give me the wifi only version and the option to do without the touch/type cover for $350 and they can have my money no doubt

    • Ben A

      its not high. fool. take a look at nokia offering before you make up “too high” statements.

  • Neo

    Yea, wrong price for that device. Not buying…

    • nickcraze

      STFU! if you are not interested the please STFU. This devices is LTE and has a new generation processor. If you don’t like the price then STFU. Thank You.

      • Ben A

        AGREED. If he don’t like the price move some where else to something cheap and crap. we need quality tablets Microsoft surface, nokia upcoming tablet and iPad and sony tablets, not a array of crappy cheap Samsung like copy cat tablets.

    • Ben A

      wrong price is not. exclusive apps. right price and quality. not crap. this is not android tablets.

    • Ben A

      btw nobody gives a shit if you are buying it or not. its made for the mobile tablet, its not a laptop and nokia is not a PC manufacturer, its a mobile manufacturer so ARM makes more sense to nokia than before with their horrible underatted crappy atom windows tablet or laptop running vista back in 2007.

  • JosipoGo

    I want one, will it be available worldwide?

    • Ben A

      yep of course

  • iamwarpath

    Make a 6 to 8 inch model and you have my money.

  • 13hromero13

    Those who think the price is too high, I can’t think of a tablet like this with LTE at that price point

  • xSchlo

    Hmm…ipad for 729$ is not too expensive and this one for 499$ is too expensive. Maybe must come in white?

    • nickcraze

      Exactly… This is pathetic from these people expecting them to give them away or at a lost for Marketshare. If you don’t make money Marketshare doesn’t mean shit. unless you are google.

      • JReuben1

        $500 – thats crazy for an RT device – you can purchase 2 and a half ChromeBooks at that price.

        • Cruncher

          And when you have 2.5 ChromeBooks you still do not have an LTE Tablet….
          So are you proposing to buy an LTE Tablet on top of the 2.5 ChromeBooks?

          • JReuben1

            You mean a Nexus 7 ? At this point I have an IPad 3 – am quite satisfied; no need to get another tablet, especially not the new Zune.

          • Joe_HTH

            What’s your point other than blatant trolling? The iPad 3 is a far worse tablet than this Nokia tablet.

          • JReuben1

            Apparently, MS is willing to pay me $200 for my IPad: http://www.theverge.com/2013/9/13/4725944/microsoft-ipad-trade-in-deal-offer-surface – thats just sad.

        • Joe_HTH

          You know what’s crazier? spending $630-$830 for a less capable iPad 4. However, I don’t see you calling those prices crazy, and they are far more ridiculous than these prices.

          As for Chromebooks, they are complete shit. Far worse than Windows RT or Android. If you got a Chromebook, what the hell would you have? Nothing!

    • c0urtn3y

      This is only my personal opinion so for what its worth consider this, although I wouldn’t consider the quality of the Toshiba Encore to be anywhere near this it is a x86 tablet that will be $329 at release. I’m no spec whore so I’d go for RT/W8.1 (I prefer an 8″tablet though) and I’ve been holding out for a Nokia tablet since the rumors started going around and if they don’t announce a wifi only version of this at a lower price point guess what i’ll be getting? You can’t compare these to iPads because the iPad has a greater mindshare so that will sell at just about any price point Apple chooses. Just so you know I’m not biased, I bought my Red L920 off Expansys and I would prefer it had a Red Nokia Tablet companion :)

  • Gopi Krishna

    350USD is a good deal..

    • Joe_HTH

      You people are high. You essentially want Microsoft and/or Nokia to lose money on every tablet they sell? Good grief what a bunch of cheap ass idiots.

    • Ben A

      no its cheap. quality and cheap don’t combine together.

  • Aaron Hu

    Replace the Snapdragon 800 with a Bay Trail quad core Atom processor, run full windows and this will be an instant hit. Lower the price by a hundred, best tablet of the year.

    • Ben A

      cant replace a chip, since Nokia is a mobile manufacturer not a PC manufacturer, its not android, Microsoft has rules for OEMs, who are in a category of Mobile manufacture is for windows RT/windows phones and PC manufacturers are for windows only but can expand to mobility. don’t underestimate SNAPDRAGON POWER, since battery life is way superior to intel’s.

      • Aaron Hu

        Still, qualcomm chips can’t run full windows.

        • Ben A

          yep because its ARM you fool

          • Aaron Hu

            ~_~ As if i didn’t know that already

    • Cruncher

      Not at all. BayTrail is much to week on the GPU side to really compete with the latest Android and iPad offerings.
      Remember we are talking about a tablet, where people like to play the latest games.
      If you want to run your business apps buy and ultra-book with a real core-i-processor. In addition you have the choice of just buying any of the literally thousands of BayTrail Tablets announced. Putting a BayTrail inside this would be more than stupid.

      • Aaron Hu

        Why are there so many Qualcomm fan boys around? I’m just saying it would be nice to have full windows and the only way to make the tablet cheap is using a atom processor. Chill man.

        • Cruncher

          I am no Qualcomm fanboy at all. I am just pointing out, that this is one of the few devices (Microsoft Surface 2 beeing the other), which can effectively compete with the Android and Apple offerings from the gaming performance point of view.
          At the same time there are quite a few BayTrail offerings already, so it makes no sense replacing the Snapsragon 800 with BayTrail as you proposed in your original posting.
          If you dont care for gaming Performance, fine with me. Just go out and buy any of the many BayTrail offerings.

  • Wieland

    Uuuuh… This looks glossy. Uuuhm… I dont like glossy. Will they all be glossy? Since not all Lumias are glossy. I’d like a cyan one. But… just not… glossy :S aww shit.

  • poken1151

    So MS is driving hard with RT despite Haswell and other retorts from manufactures. It’s a lil weird to me, but fine cool. My hope for their continued drive in this though, is that RT has elliminated any need or access to the Desktop. I feel that has been my main issue with it as a portable tablet OS. If that’s all it’s to be then remove the hard to use desktop portion. Make the MS-Office applications fullscreen or something (or advanced versions of the regular metro apps) but whatever they do, if they are pushing this, I hope they remove the desktop part, unless it’s somehow become far more usable in RT. Otherwise, I feel the general trend will still be a confused, “huh?”

    • Ben A

      they will be removing the desktop as soon as office full metro arrives for windows RT,

      • poken1151

        Aye, I would hope that’s the case (I hadn’t seen anything saying this till now) but I’d hope if they do it happens before release. A lot of consumers aren’t the type to buy into hopefully being less confused later.
        As much as many called the ipad a jumbo iphone, it was a clear item. The RT as an OS, I hate to say, just caused havoc for a lot of people (sadly some older/much younger family members too). “Can we get rid of the laptop?” “why not? It has the desktop things right?” “no? then why doesn it look like this?” “and why do I have all these squares”.

        But handing them a full windows tablet has been far easier. So, yea, to call it a big metro device would be cool, so I hope you’re right on that.

  • S_A_R_K_I_S

    interesting, so it uses the same camera as the Nokia Lumia 720, guess f1.9 ;)
    I might purchase this and the Surface 2……….Hurry up 26th of September !!!

  • Pookiewood

    Corner Cam? Doesn’t seem Nokia like.

    • Ben A

      what do you fucking expect then a 41MP camera hump on back of the tablet and take pictures on a big tablet like a fool.

      • Pookiewood

        Haha! Bring it down from a 10 to a 2. Notice I said “Corner Cam”. I never said anything about Megapixels or quality. Nokia puts there cameras on their phones more centered in portrait mode and dropped more towards center so that when you take a picture your finger is not in the way. Why would they do this on the tablet? I can’t stand seeing people filming their kids events with iPads.

  • c0urtn3y

    My Perfect Nokia tablet for 2013 early 2014 would be:

    -8″ 1080p screen

    -RT/W8.1

    -SD800/Haswell processor

    -Wifi only (IDC to pay these carriers anymore money than they already get)

    -Micro HDMI and usb with Micro SD expandability

    -HD FF cam (don’t care for a camera on the rear of a tablet)

    -Priced bet $349-$449

  • jcfan1979

    WinRT is fine with me (sorry that rhymes). Don’t need desktop baggage on my portable device. Office with Outlook, WinRT 8.1, Nokia Apps/Design, USB, LTE, Keyboard sign me up. Sure I’d like it to be $399 but I paid more for a less capable iPad and then more for a nice Logitech keyboard. This is a steal.

  • tomakali

    I Wish, Lumia 1520 ran RT

  • Joe_HTH

    Considering desktop and legacy software is crap on a tablet, I can’t help but laugh at the “price is too high” BS!

    • Ben A

      Microsoft is slowly removing the desktop soon after 8.1 when 8.5 or 9 comes in 2014, as the store grows and the aligment of API cross platform app and buy in WP8.1 and 8.1 that’s when windows phone and RT fully merge into one mobile os like android and iOS and plus run apps from PC, tablet and phone and xbox cross API, soon fully in later 2014, for now its PC,Tablet and phone without the merge but cross buy sync apps across devices in each operating system that fits various of devices from PC to mobile and in the future able to run multiple of ARM chips not just QUALCOMM and plus even move into 64bit ARM and X-86 intel mobile(ARM like) processors for tablets and phone, since intel said its for 2014.
