Digitimes: Nokia to resume development of Windows RT tablet

9

In a sign of optimism, according to Digitimes Nokia has resumed development of their rumoured 10 inch Windows RT tablet.

Apparently the tablet was originally planned for a MWC 2013 unveil in February, but was put on the back burner due to Microsoft’s Surface tablet.

The tablet, which is expected to return in smaller volumes that the originally planned 200,000, will come with a Qualcomm’s S4 processor and be ODM’ed by Compal.

Thanks Tom for the tip.

    Hopefully cheaper than a surface also. Lets hope they do a 7-8 inch version as well, I’m so over the lag of my nexus 7, I’ll drop it on ebay in a heartbeat and be all over one of these like white on rice.

      I have a Nexus 7 also and I know how you feel. I will be saving my money for this baby. I wonder if Nokia will make a windows 8 Pro tablet.

        Unlikely. It wouldn’t fit in with their eco-system. They wouldn’t otherwise be able to leverage their ARM hardware & software!

    Most of the time we believe Digitimes to be blowing ‘wind!’

    Let’s hope this is the ‘1-in-1000′ that they actually get right!

    They should to a 7″ tablet and my bet it they will use a version of Windows Phone 8 – no need for a desktop at this size. That way, it’s more competing with the Galaxy Note, rather than Surface RT. A 7″ tablet would be useful for all kinds of things, even as a TV remote.

    I must say THEY are very very sleek n taunting me to hand my money over.
    Has any else found they are losing control of their purchasing with all these great devices coming out lately? (SurfaceRT (Pro shortly), Lumia 920, HTC 8X, Windows 8, Office 2013, etc etc etc…)
    There’s a lot of good coming from Microsoft, Partners, and Developers
