Did Nokia accidentally reveal its new tablet?
Over in Pakistan, Nokia was introducing the Nokia Lumia 620 phone when one of the images in the background showed what appeared to be a Lumia-styled tablet with the same style that you might expect from the Nokia Lumia handsets. It is described as having "a thin bezel, colorful casing and rounded sides."

There is some speculation that Nokia has been working on a Windows RT tablet, and back in December we passed along the word that the slate was to have a 10.1 inch screen, offer cellular connectivity, and have a cover with a physical QWERTY keyboard like the Touch Cover for the Microsoft Surface RT. Unlike the Touch Cover for the latter device, Nokia's cover would have a kickstand and an embedded battery that would extend the battery life of the tablet while also recharging the battery on the tablet itself. It also would protect the slate. It is unclear if this would come with the tablet or be offered as an accessory. Those close to Nokia's plans said at the time that a small number of units would be built with Windows RT powering the tablet and that eventually there would be a Windows 8 model.

If there is a Nokia tablet in the works, we should see it later this month at MWC 2013 in Barcelona. If not, it probably means that the rumors that Nokia has decided to stop thinking about a tablet in order to concentrate on its handsets, is true.
