Nokia might spoil the Surface party today with the announcement of a Windows tablet project
A former Nokia executive has confirmed for the Finnish newspaper "Tekniika&Talous" (technology and the economy), that Nokia has a Windows 8 tablet in the works in its San Diego headquarters.

We've heard rumors about a Nokia Windows slate powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset before, and the design chief Marko Ahtisaari confirmed not long ago, again in an interview for a Finnish newspaper, that a third of his time is spent on such a project, but then the rumors dried up, until today.

The Nokia exec mentioned that the Windows tablet project of the Finns might even get fleshed out today, at the big joint event with Microsoft two hours from now, and, considering Redmond has its own Surface tablets announced, we are curious what Nokia intends to bring to the table.

gtx video card is an overkill for a tablet

I think specs are good, but a pureview on a tablet is not necessary. You don't want to go around shoot some photos with your tablet. it'll make you look dumb :))

Hmm sounds like a good day for Nokia if it does announce a Tablet it will make their stock go up and offer the People another choice. There are a lot of Windows RT and Windows 8 tablets out there to choose from. Many of then look very good . the trouble is when you go into a retailer to buy them will the sales person know each device enough to give you enough information to make a good decision?
