Nokia RX-114 with Snapdragon 800 appears in benchmarks, possibly a Windows RT tablet
Now that's interesting. Apparently, Nokia may be testing a Snapdragon 800 powered Windows device as we write these very lines, if the data spotted in a recent benchmark result is to be trusted. Bearing the RX-114 model name, the device in question was outed by the GFXbench app. This, however, isn't necessarily a WP8 smartphone. Instead, the Nokia RX-114 could very well be a Windows RT based tablet currently in development. According to the listing, 1371 by 771 pixels is the display resolution of this mysterious slate, which may be quite unusual of a figure, but it comes close enough to the 1366 by 768 pixel screen size on the Surface RT.

Yet something tells us that if the Nokia RX-114 really is a Windows RT tablet, then its launch is far from guaranteed. For starters, Windows RT tablets are selling poorly, which is why many manufacturers have already abandoned their plans on releasing new devices running this variant of Microsoft's OS. On top of that, we're hearing that Nokia is now focused on building a Windows 8 tablet instead of anything based on Windows RT. Sure, the Nokia RX-114 benchmark result isn't necessarily a forgery, but the device could be nothing but a scrapped prototype that someone is just playing around with. 

Either way, we believe that the chances of witnessing the launch of a Windows RT tablet by Nokia are very slim. Folks who do want to own a Windows RT slate anyway, for one reason or another, might want to check the $350 sale of Microsoft's Surface RT tablet.

Wow, what a great quote! Either I had forgotten about it or hadn't heard it when new. Still accurate 3 years later!

I almost did, until RT ruined it.

Btw, that's the most unusual screen resolution I've ever seen. I rather have them make a tablet than Windows RT.

Maybe the extra resolution is for balmer's face to be embedded

Nokiapoweruser is reporting that it is windows 8 tablet.I compared the Nokia RX-114 with the other tablets on the website.The results of the Nokia RX-114 from the tab "high level" is comparable with the other windows 8 tablets,not windows RT.I think it's a windows 8 tablet.

Windows 8 probably won't run very well on ARM processors, such as the Snapdragon 800. But who knows, we'll see.

The x86 version of Windows doesn't run on ARM, only RT does.

Hmm, wonder if that extra resolution could be set aside for an area of dedicated on-screen keys...

Hmmmm this a weird article, because it was leaked a few weeks ago that Nokia ditched Windows RT for a Tablet. They wanted to make a full W8 tablet!

Trust the pathetic android shills at phone arena to put a negative spin on this. I've had enough of this crappy site
