Nokia Win 8 tablet framed to sport exclusive apps like 'Adidas micoach'
Nokia keeps denying it, but developers keep leaking it - that's roughly the state of the rumor about an eventual Finnish foray into the tablet game with a Windows 8 slate to go with your Nokia Lumia device.

The latest development comes from a developer (pun not intended), who at his own personal blog writes that he had helped design a proposal for an exclusive Nokia Tablet app. Now we all know how Nokia's Lumia phones are chock-full of exclusive apps that only their Windows Phone ecosphere sports, so we'd imagine Nokia might have something similar in mind to make its alleged Windows tablet stand out as well. Here's the full listing:

Helped design and concept the Adidas micoach app proposal for the Nokia Tablet. The Tablet App intended to be an extension of coaches allowing them to build teams and monitor individual trainings for each athlete. The way that works is to connect he app to existing technology on Adidas products to read the workout data registered by cell chip implants. The app also tapped into the community allowing users to challenge each other by sending notifications to friends and their social feeds.

While the app proposal certainly sounds interesting, the newsbreaking part here is that they are talking at all about a Nokia Tablet like it's a done deal. You know, smoke=fire, but we'll see if and what Nokia comes up with in its first Win 8 slate.

You obviously did not see a Sony tablet Z yet... This does not look like the Z. Not even close.

So, anything with sharp corners look like Sony Z tablet, and to Samsung or Apple fans anything with round corners look like iPad or Galaxy Tabs? So, if HTC or Nokia makes a tab, what kind of corners should it have? I guess you'like to see horns or an external antenna on it? To all the trolls out there including you, please try not to make yourself look stupid.

Just to let you know, there are a bunch of Chinese cheap tablets which looks like Sony's tablet, and some were even made before Sony's tablets. It's pretty stupid to say this tablet looks like the other one by another company. Most TVs and Monitors look the same as well.

Since the Lumia 920 is such a brick, imagine how huge this will be. 10 pounds and 16mm thick for a Windows RT?

Oh, you poor poor child!!
Can't even lift a phone nor can you differentiate a phone from a brick...
Eat fresh vegetables and fruits for the eyes and do push-ups and lift 'dumb'-bells ever morning for 30 minutes.

I prefer the Kindle Fire HD. The interface is great and it's very easy to use. Check out its Amazon page(amzn.to/11SRHbE) if you want to compare what they bring to the table.
