First Nokia Windows Tablet coming May 14th?

First Nokia Windows Tablet coming May 14th?
We've already told you that Nokia is going to have a press event on May 14th in London during which we expect to see the Finnish based manufacturer introduce the Nokia Lumia 928 and possibly the Nokia Catwalk, and just maybe the Nokia Lumia EOS. The latter is the oft-rumored Windows Phone version of the Nokia 808 PureView.

But now from India comes a source who says that Nokia will also be introducing its first Windows tablet. It is not known if the slate will be powered by Windows RT or Windows 8, but the tablet will have a 10.1 inch screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution and a 1GHz processor. On board is 1GB of RAM. The size of the slate is 256.6×175.3×9.7mm and the device weighs in at at 676g.

Would Nokia have a chance in a market that so far has been controlled by Apple and Amazon? We should know Nokia's intentions by the time next month's press conference wraps up. You might recall that back in February, it was thought that Nokia accidentally leaked a picture of a new tablet during a presentation. Nokia denied that the image was of a Nokia tablet, saying that it was merely an illustration of the Windows 8 UI put up for comparative purposes.

I doubt it. Nokia will use May 14 to launch the international version of the Lumia 928, which in my opinion is a 13mp camera phone with xenon flash.

1GHz and 1Gb of RAM? That sounds like India's own Aakash tablet, cant be the spec of a Nokia tablet. Even RT needs 2GB of RAM.

Thats too heavy for the specs. Still if this is cheaper than any 10 in tab. Is gonna be good for nokia!!

Wow the specs are lacking. Hopefully a low price to make up for it, but even then not for me. I might be interested in an 8"

there are 2 cases here : either the specs here are just rumours or remember when Elop said they're watching the surface and seeing how it progress and they came to the conclusion that an extremely affordable tablet

Elop doesn't watch anything ... he only watches the instructions that comes to him from HQ ... because his job is safe as long as M$ Coupons are active. Another thing that he closely watches is WHAT TO SELL or which BRANCH of Nokia to close.

Those specs are crazy. If they want the tablet to sell they need to put at least windows8 on it

Knowing Nokia, I think it will come with a slider Qwerty keyboard too. Hence the rumoured weight. And if these are the specs, I hope Nokia price it cheap. Most of the Android tabs (except Nexus 7) in the lower end of the market are total cr*p.

I like and suport Nokia but, 1GB Ram? Put at least 2 GB. 1ghz processor? Put at least a quadcore @ 1,5ghz. Also put a full HD screen in it, this will put them on top of the market!

well folks the last time I looked up Intel atom CPU chips there is one that runs at 1,2 GHZ. this may be the one that the Nokia tablet will use and it is Windows 8 capable. Atom windows 8 tablets are good low power tablets that can run MS office very well and play all the games in the Windows 8 store well their weakness is they slow up on Multitasking and will not play the very graphics intensive HD Video PC games. to play those games a PC needs an intel i7 CPU and those heavy duty fast high Ram graphics cards. This Tab can be a well make good General Windows 8 tablets but folks I donot see many intel i7 CPU tablets wuith a good GPU out there. they are the only ones that can handle those HD video games..
