Nokia Windows RT tablet appears as "Sirius" on GFX, gets Bluetooth certified
posted by Alan F. / Sep 15, 2013, 8:04 PM
The GFX benchmark test shows the tablet containing a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor CPU paired with the Adreno 330 GPU. So far, we've seen a leaked model of the tablet in red wearing the Verizon brand and have had some specs leaked. We expect to see the Nokia Windows RT tablet come equipped with a 10.1 inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen with a boost for viewing the display under bright sunlight. 2GB of RAM will be available along with 32GB of native storage with a microSD slot on board. Rear and front-facing snappers weigh in at 6MP and 2MP respectively. The battery will offer 10 hours of power and the tablet will feature 4G LTE connectivity.
Like the Microsoft Surface slabs, the Nokia tablet will connect to an optional QWERTY equipped cover with an embedded battery that increases the cell's life on the slate. We could see the tablet unveiled on September 26th at the same time that the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet is introduced.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

RT Tablets aren't selling at all. I hope Nokia knows what they're doing.

I bet money that Nokia RT will fail. And I don't like to gamble.

WHY?! Why does Nokia have to waste it's money, time and expertise on failing Windows RT Tablets whilst currently having financial problems? Stupid! (for now) Nokia Tablets should come in 2014 with the newly acquired Nokia.

^^^^^^^ To all of you. RT has had trouble due to pricing. Now that the prices are coming down and if Nokia prices this right it could take off depending on how appealing they make it. They need to market it against the iPad because that is MS's intentions with RT is to compete with iOS and Android. It makes sense. Some bloggers and commenters just aren't getting that. Heck MS didn't get it due to initial pricing.

It's not only pricing. The problem is it's just not needed. We already have iPad's and Android's with well established markets. And rumor has it that Nokia will charge $500 for this tablet. I don't see the average Joe wanting to pay that type of cash for a unproven platform. I personally have no interest because I already have a iPad 1, Nexus 7 2012, Note 10.1 and Samsung 7" within my household.

Is Snapdragon 800 WITH WINDOWS 8 too much to ask?

If they took the RT off of this article title then I wouldn't have facepalmed myself... Can someone please explain to me why Nokia is producing a tablet that runs off of Windows 8 RT instead of just Windows 8...? Either there's a difference in the two versions of the operating system that I'm not aware of, or Nokia is crazy.
