Nokia's upcoming Windows RT tablet gets new specs and details
Nokia denied it for a long time, but it has become quite clear that the company is in fact working on a Windows RT tablet. The device is expected to be announced next month, and we are finally getting some rumored specs and details on the device. According to the new information, the Nokia tablet will launch with Windows RT 8.1, which would likely put the launch sometime in mid-to-late October, since Microsoft just set the Windows 8.1 release at October 17th.
According to the new rumor, the Nokia tablet will feature a 10.1" display running at 1080p resolution with 5-point multitouch and wide viewing angles. That sounds nice, but the 5-point multitouch seems odd given that most modern devices have 10-point multitouch. The tablet is said to be running a Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.15GHz and have 32GB of storage. No word on RAM, though.
There is expected to be a detachable keyboard/stand that will work like the Asus Transformer keyboard and include a battery for extended tablet usage. The tablet is said to have full USB ports with micro HDMI & USB 3.0 port support, and Wireless N Cell compatible. We have heard before that it will come in various colors, but it is said that there will be an option for matte cyan.
Like most mobile devices in the Windows sphere, it is said the Nokia tablet will launch with an AT&T supported model.
How does all that sound to you?
