Nokia Windows RT tablet appears as "Sirius" on GFX, gets Bluetooth certified
0. phoneArena 15 Sep 2013, 20:04 posted on
The rumored Nokia Windows RT tablet has been Bluetooth certified under the model number of RM-114; interestingly, the slate went through the GFX benchmark test with a model number of RX-114. Mobile ad network AdDuplex also found model number RX-114 in its logs. And earlier leaks revolving around the Nokia Windows RT slab have given it the code name of "Sirius" which turns up on the GFX benchmark test...

RT Tablets aren't selling at all. I hope Nokia knows what they're doing.

Window Phones weren't selling at all, But the result is acceptable.
Restrictions on third party apps is the only problem with RT devices.

Nor are chromebooks. google has to give them away to schools in the USA.

I bet money that Nokia RT will fail. And I don't like to gamble.

How do u know? you just have to gamble. You still haven't seen sirius. Maybe the have something to offer.. :)

I bet money that google's chromebook strategy has already failed and will most likely be canned by the end of next year.

WHY?! Why does Nokia have to waste it's money, time and expertise on failing Windows RT Tablets whilst currently having financial problems? Stupid! (for now) Nokia Tablets should come in 2014 with the newly acquired Nokia.

Not Nokia, elop want to do it because ms want to do it.
12. Timmehor (Posts: 599; Member since: 09 Mar 2013)
Not everything is completely decided by Elop, the board would of probably agreed to this too, it isn't *ALL* Elop.

Elop isn't with Nokia anymore, he went to Microsoft as part of the acquisition announcement terms to prevent a seeming conflict of interest
33. Timmehor (Posts: 599; Member since: 09 Mar 2013)
He completely left? I thought he would swap to Microsoft in 2014 when Nokia is fully bought!

Nokia makes a decent move with that 1080p Bandit phone but they take 2 steps back with RT. Microsoft should just abandon RT and not let the casualties grow from it.

whats wrong with RT ? you want a tablet they are giving a tablet that run tablet apps :/
22. tashreef (Posts: 476; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
but you can't run third party apps that's the problem.. and everyone knows how good/fast MS at developing apps

^^^^^^^ To all of you. RT has had trouble due to pricing. Now that the prices are coming down and if Nokia prices this right it could take off depending on how appealing they make it. They need to market it against the iPad because that is MS's intentions with RT is to compete with iOS and Android. It makes sense. Some bloggers and commenters just aren't getting that. Heck MS didn't get it due to initial pricing.
15. fanboy1974 (Posts: 1345; Member since: 12 Nov 2011)
It's not only pricing. The problem is it's just not needed. We already have iPad's and Android's with well established markets. And rumor has it that Nokia will charge $500 for this tablet. I don't see the average Joe wanting to pay that type of cash for a unproven platform. I personally have no interest because I already have a iPad 1, Nexus 7 2012, Note 10.1 and Samsung 7" within my household.
23. tashreef (Posts: 476; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
then let the one buy who don't have "a iPad 1, Nexus 7 2012, Note 10.1 and Samsung 7" within their household.

RT does not need to exist, its wasting time while they could focus on windows8
31. Edmund (Posts: 656; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
Chromebooks and android tablets don't need to exist, but they do.
9. JojoGo101 (Posts: 211; Member since: 17 Dec 2012)
Is Snapdragon 800 WITH WINDOWS 8 too much to ask?
26. -box- (Posts: 3991; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Full desktop OS needs a desktop-class processor to be run. As good as the new Snapsragons are, they're still a mobile chip.
Need to have an x64 or x86 processor to run Win 8.

If they took the RT off of this article title then I wouldn't have facepalmed myself... Can someone please explain to me why Nokia is producing a tablet that runs off of Windows 8 RT instead of just Windows 8...? Either there's a difference in the two versions of the operating system that I'm not aware of, or Nokia is crazy.

useless windows..it cannot support major video formats...for those who says windows doesnot lag my 520 takes more than 5 seconds to load whats app..xperia z takes 2 seconds..
nokia restarts if internet explorer is overloaded by rich image sites..
when u suddenly move out of applications like whats app.. lumia restarts..
ya no hanging u need not press restart.. it will do automatically...
no easy wifi on/off widget.. cannot rename ur blutooth..no file manager.. cannot play music by folder.. cannot sideload ur video/ music in different folder..
memory problem is worst.. when u install application, windows pre allocat space..8gb is nulled to 1 gb with essential applications like adobe,whats app.. and no space for games...
for those who complain about s4 memory and say lag i curse them to buy lumia.. i am however impressed with audio quality and touch response.. so will be using lumia like an ipod, but useless product when compared to android..
i have no problem with windows 8.1 however.. its good.. love bs player and gom player..
love the performance .. but going back to rt is like going back to android 2.2..
think before u buy... android is popular because its more mature.. if u have good hardware like htc one/ xperia z1.. u get all high.. nokia is useless with windows...

That was only 1 point, dude ! Read the rest of his comment.
Windows has no file manager, microsd, app crashing/loading issues, . Deal with it !
