Nokia Sirius Windows RT tablet pictured with new info

We should be getting pretty close to an official reveal of Nokia's new Windows RT tablet, codenamed Sirius. The tablet, and Nokia's rumored phablet, the 6-inch Lumia 1520, codenamed Bandit, are expected to be announced at an event later this month. But, in the meantime, we're seeing it pictured again with new info added into the mix.

The specs listed for the device are basically what we've already known. It will be a 10.1-inch 1920x1080 display, with a Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, with 10 hours of battery life, and running Windows RT. The rear camera spec has been modified a bit from 6MP to 6.7MP. And, the price is still expected to be $499, which is annoyingly high for an RT device, especially since we're seeing full Windows 8.1 hybrids clocking in at $349

Interestingly, the Nokia tablet is expected to have a multi-function cover with keyboard and additional battery life, which sounds quite a bit like the Power Cover that we recently heard about for the Surface. Although, given that the Nokia tablet is already listed at 1.3 pounds (~590g), we're hoping the cover doesn't add as much bulk as the Power Cover is said to, because that would almost double the weight. 

Word has it that the official announcement is on the way September 26th, so we only have a couple more weeks before we get the full info.

This is a tablet, not a smartphone. Bezel is one of the most important thing for a tablet, which helps you to avoid accidental taps/presses.

the iPad mini pulls of a thin bezel, besides the bezel makes it look like a photo frame!

That's how 10.1 inch tablets should look like IMO. Just think it as a photo frame that can do everything like playing games, browsing the web, watching movies etc. Not trying to be a fanboy or something, but I like the photo frame design on 10.1 inch tablets.

Agreed. Those Samsung tvs with little to no bezel are fantastic.

No, you can't. Unless Elop knows who you are or you're president Obama then you can use whatever you want.

Strongly considering the Surface RT since the price drop, but with this announcement I may hold off.

The red is hot, I'm not biased that it is my favorite color or anything. :)

The surface is a pretty sleek tablet. The battery life isn't too bad and meh it's windows 8, but its a great replacement for my laptop and iPad which I use both constantly for work.

what's the point buying a window RT, you can't install legendary your window apps, also limited RT apps, no matter how beautiful and good specs this device maybe be. it got d most ugly OS. haven't you wonder why most OEM company doesn't support development for hardware OS. cos he ain't gonna sell. Microsoft quite windows RT this equation don't have a solution.
