Did Nokia accidentally reveal its new tablet?

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.

There's also a Desktop PC monitor in that picture.. where is the rumor and speculation that Nokia will release a new PC? All this picture shows is how Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8/RT share the same design language for the start screen.. Microsoft does this all the time.

True, but the tablet pictured appears to be the same yellow as the Lumia series. Do you know of any yellow Windows tablets on the market?

I'm ready for a tablet this year. But also a need a pc as well. Yet I'm not gonna spend money on two devices. I need something that can give me the best of both worlds with a price tag that won't choke me. IPad, no. Nexus, no. Kindle, nope. These are merely toys. Windows 8RT, yeah! But no because it does not legacy apps. Windows 8pro, YES!! Again, no. The price is not justifiable. At this point, I'll have to wait and see. Do some more research. Hopefully Nokia has something good at a price many can afford.

No way, that would jack the price up maybe $200 for a feature nobody cares about on a tablet.

While I detest people using their tablets as cameras, if a tablet had OIS I wouldn't feel as scornful, since it would offset the significant shake involved holding up something the size of a book to take a photo (especially when the lens isn't centered in the body)

thin bezel?look at that thing.you gotta be kidding me

Bezel refers to the clearance between the edge of the device and the display, or in other words, extent to which the display reaches on the front panel. The picture is blurry, but you can clearly see that the bezel is thinner than most tablets on the market.
