Image of Nokia Windows RT powered prototype tablet outed
Rumors have been around for some time about a Nokia branded Windows powered tablet. As recently as last month, there was some talk that this slate would be introduced at the same time that the Nokia EOS would be unveiled. That is going to tale place on Thursday, meaning that those hoping for a slab produced by the Finnish based manufacturer will be crossing their fingers tightly heading into the July 11th announcement.

Meanwhile, a member of the forum on Windows Phone Central posted a picture that he claims is of a prototype Nokia tablet, powered by Windows RT. The specs include a 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16point touchscreen, HDMI-Out, USB port and a SIM slot. The poster states that Nokia pulled the device because of the dated Tegra 3 silicon. There still are questions about the legitimacy of the picture. Note the lack of a rear camera, something that is strange considering Nokia's heavy focus on cameras these days.

Just the other day, a Nokia Lumia road-map of sorts mentioned two tablets in the works. One has an 8.5 inch screen and the other has a 10.5 inch panel and is 8.5mm thin. Both will be offered in Green, Black, Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow and White and will feature aluminum casing. The camera on the tablets is said to feature Nokia's new Zoom technology which is supposed to be part of the Finnish OEM's media event on Thursday

doesn't equal fail. IMO RT is just right for my kids, surf the web and play games that's all that's needed

"windows" is suppose to be a full OS. not a mobile OS that can only run mobile apps. Windows is nothing without its compatibility to run any 32 and 64 bit apps. just put a Intel Atom on it, costs just little more than current mobile SoCs and run full windows. even if it lags its better than running limited windows.

in my opinion RT doesn't need classic windows at all it just needs decent windows app store

It would be better if the app store was larger, until then RT is a flop.

"The poster states that Nokia pulled the device because of the dated Tegra 3 silicon." That's not going to be the final device that will be manufactured and sold.

Its no more fail than chrome book.. Lets talk about how lacking that is versus the price.

Chromebook is way more fail it's true. You can actually get Chromebooks for a lot cheaper though. What people don't understand is that Windows RT is technically a full OS. It's just limited by it's power envelope and weak, weak performance compared to x86 solutions. Think, if Windows 8 (x86) stopped legacy support aka. any application made for Windows 7 or earlier versions, it'd be no different than Windows RT except having way more beastly guts inside. Now that ARM is dominating the mobile space, I don't doubt that as it's chips start closing the performance gap, more traditional legacy apps will be available for RT either through the app store, or a 3rd party website, where much of the legacy software comes from.

I am more interested in A Nokia windows 8 Tablet. I do not think window RT is a bad product. it comes with a pre loaded Microsoft Office suit and it will soon get windows outlook mail client. this makes this a good business production tablet right out of the box. no Android tablet or Apple Ipad can match it for business purposes. it's 2 faults are it needs more Apps and in time it will get them and too many people want A Windows 8 Tablet shaped PC which is in a whole different class than an Apple Ipad or any Android tablet because Apple Ipads and any Android tablet do not run full blown PC Desktop/laptop/server programs. Like the Windows RT tablet they run onl touch screen apps
