Nokia tablet visits the FCC, supports Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile
This device could be a variation of the Nokia Lumia 2520, which is rumored to be a Nokia branded Windows RT powered tablet headed for Verizon. The tablet is supposed to be unveiled on October 22nd in Abu Dhabi along with the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet.
The tablet is expected to come to market with a 10.1 inch screen, driven by a 2.15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Nokia plans on offering protective covers that double as a keyboard. One will be like the Microsoft Surface Touch Cover with a flat, touch QWERTY keyboard. Another will be like the Type Cover, which has raised keys similar to the keyboard you would see on a PC.
We expect to see the Nokia tablet launch in November.

No sprint? Come on, Nokia! I know many people who are on Sprint. Leaving out one of the big four is a horrible choice. BUT, i guess 3/4 is better than having it be just an AT&T exclusive again.

I don't understand why people like Sprint, they have the worst network and tmobile has better coverage than them + cheaper prices.

Call it a "Joke" all you want. It's still the 3rd largest carrier in the USA. That's not changing anytime soon. Ignoring it isn't going to boost sales (in fact, ignoring 50 million potential customers is down right stupid).

Then you need to be pointing your finger at sprint and not Nokia.. Sprint is slowly slipping into the "no one cares" category.

Explain why they're losing more customers than gaining while it's the exact opposite for T-Mo? Sprint is dying. People are waking up and seeing the mistake in investing money brcause of a two year contract with them.
Sprint don't be #3 in the next few years I guarantee you that.

Sprint is seriously missing out with the choice to leave the lumia line out of their selection (as well as Sony). Sprint is just always the opposite, slow and sluggish.

Must it be RT? Based on what i've been reading through out the year it should be dead by now...

about microsoft produt's i don't belive most things written by tech sites reviews. The amount of blind hate towards microsoft is off the charts
And no matter how many reviews a read when i go to a store and use it in person.
and if you would ever touched one you would know that most of those reviews about the surface and WinRt are complete peices of sh*t,

It's called use common sense.. How it feels when YOU use it is just as if not more important that what a paid sponsor says on a website.

Nokia was reported to be making very limited number of tablets to see how well they will sell.
I believe Nokia will test the waters with with their Windows Rt Tablet but have a Windows 8.1 backup tablet. if Nokia is sharp they will market their windows 8.1 tablet in the states where people prefer the Windows 8.1 tablets. in a little over 3 weeks we will know what Nokia has to Offer in it's last entries into the Smart phone and tablet Mobile world I will be sorry to see them go.If Microsoft is smart and let the Nokia designers do their thing nokia will be reborn inside of Microsoft. I think Microsoft should have two line of tablets the colorful cheaper Plastic nokia designed tablets for the general public and the American Surface pro team do the top of the line Surface pro tablets. I do not want the American designers and the Finnish design team to fight.

this tablets going to have a graceful curving back body design like the Nokia Lumia 920. If it comes in many polycarbonate plastic colors and Microsoft puts the best of the Intel Atom
processors in it. MS could use this case design to make a cheaper Line of Windows tablets called the Lumia tablets for budget minded buyers who cannot afford to pay for their Top of the line Tablets known as the "Surface Tablets" a lot of people are complaining that the Surface tablets cost too much therefore Microsoft has to learn what Nokia learned Which is you can make a cheaper version of your best stuff and make money. For example the Nokia 520 is not as good as the Nokia lumia 920, 925, 928 or it's 1020 but the lumia 520's sell well in many countries. Including the United States. they sell out on HSN in the USA.
