Nokia to release a 10" Windows 8 tablet with dual-core Snapdragon S4 in Q4
Sources from the "upstream supply chain" indicate that the rumored Nokia Windows 8 tablet is on the way to become reality in Q4. Nokia is reportedly going to use a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset for its 10" slate.
The Finns have apparently outsourced the production to Compal already, with the first batch out of the conveyor belts expected to be 200, 000 units. Nokia has given hints and indications before that it might be interested in entering the tablet game, but before Windows 8 hits it isn't able to do so, of course.
Things are starting to get very dynamic in the tablet space this year - the new iPad just upped the ante with its high-res display, Android manufacturers are decking up their offerings as we witnessed firsthand at the MWC expo, and Windows-on-ARM might prove the wild card once it hits in Q4. Definitely a high-stakes game shaping up.
