Nokia Sirius Windows RT tablet pictured with new info

50

We should be getting pretty close to an official reveal of Nokia's new Windows RT tablet, codenamed Sirius. The tablet, and Nokia's rumored phablet, the 6-inch Lumia 1520, codenamed Bandit, are expected to be announced at an event later this month. But, in the meantime, we're seeing it pictured again with new info added into the mix.

The specs listed for the device are basically what we've already known. It will be a 10.1-inch 1920x1080 display, with a Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, with 10 hours of battery life, and running Windows RT. The rear camera spec has been modified a bit from 6MP to 6.7MP. And, the price is still expected to be $499, which is annoyingly high for an RT device, especially since we're seeing full Windows 8.1 hybrids clocking in at $349

Interestingly, the Nokia tablet is expected to have a multi-function cover with keyboard and additional battery life, which sounds quite a bit like the Power Cover that we recently heard about for the Surface. Although, given that the Nokia tablet is already listed at 1.3 pounds (~590g), we're hoping the cover doesn't add as much bulk as the Power Cover is said to, because that would almost double the weight. 

Word has it that the official announcement is on the way September 26th, so we only have a couple more weeks before we get the full info.
