Prototype of canceled Nokia "Vega" tablet appears on videos

Back in 2014, Nokia was apparently working on several tablets. A tweet disseminated the next year by tipster Evan Blass revealed that the company had canceled four tablets with the codenames Illusionist, Mercury, Pine, and Vega/Atlas. Last year, we showed you pictures of the "Mercury" tablet, and today a series of five videos, as noted by MS Power User, reveals a prototype of the Nokia "Vega" in action.

By present day standards, the Nokia "Vega" (model RX-107) looks like a relic (look at those bezels!). And the specs certainly would not blow you away today, especially compared to tablets like the Surface Pro 6 and the new Apple iPad Pro models. The "Vega" sports a 6.6-inch display, and carries a NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad Core processor under the hood. There is 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable native storage inside. The tablet is equipped with an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 1MP camera in front. Windows RT is pre-installed.

You can check out the canceled Nokia "Vega" by viewing the five videos that accompany this article. One clip is found on the top of this page, with the remaining four found in the video slideshow directly below.
