Nokia planning an event on September 26th-27th, Windows tablet on the way?
Although Nokia has denied having any plans to release a tablet, yesterday we saw an indication that the company is indeed working on a tablet. Now, a new leak has Nokia planning an event in New York on September 26th and the 27th, which of course has started the questions as to whether that tablet is real, and on the docket for the September event.

Nokia has said that it plans to have a major release every quarter; and, after its latest announcement for the Nokia Lumia 1020, CEO Stephen Elop did tease a "major launch" coming later this year from Nokia. When we first heard that, we automatically assumed that it would be another Lumia smartphone, because Nokia has shown no leaning towards making a tablet. But, things seem to have changed. 

According to a source for WPCentral who claims to have seen the Nokia tablet, the device is designed much like a Lumia phone with "bright colors and rounded corners", and it looked to be around 11-inches. Of course, the only real trouble with the rumor so far is that the info on the Nokia tablet that came out yesterday pointed towards a Windows RT device, and not a Windows 8 device. Maybe Nokia can bring some much needed buzz to the RT platform, and there may be something big coming to RT with the Blue update expected next month. But frankly, we'd rather see Windows 8.
