For quite a while now we’ve been hearing rumors about Nokia possibly working on a Windows RT tablet. Well, these rumors may be on the right track as we’re now looking at what might be device in question.
The spy photo you see below was leaked on a Chinese Twitter-like web site, depicting a slate bearing three branding logos. One of them is clearly Nokia’s and below it we see a “Windows RT” label indicating the OS running on this colorful tablet. But what makes this leak particularly interesting is the presence of a Verizon logo and 4G LTE label.
So yeah, if this leak truly holds water, then we might soon see a Windows RT tablet by Nokia riding on Verizon’s 4G LTE airwaves. We think it is a safe bet to assume that a Wi-Fi-only variant of the device will be offered as well. The colorful shell of the slate is a clue, leading us to believe that Nokia’s tablet will come in multiple fresh colors, just like the company’s Lumia smartphones.
The source of the image does not mention anything in regards to hardware specs of the device, but if recent rumors are to be trusted, the Windows RT tablet by Nokia will come with a Snapdragon 800 SoC, 32GB of storage, a 1080p screen of about 10 inches, and a USB 3.0 port. A variant for AT&T is also said to be in the works. Just keep in mind that these features are anything but official and may be inaccurate.
According to speculations, the Nokia tablet running Windows RT will be announced at an event scheduled for September 26. Then only time will tell whether it will gain any traction given the low adoption and poor sales of the Windows RT operating system.
