Nokia working on 10 inch Windows RT tablet to be displayed at MWC 2013

10 inch Windows RT tablet in Q1 2013, but Microsoft's introduction of its own Microsoft Surface tablets and the uncertainty of whether a market existed for Windows RT slates led the Finnish based firm to stop work on the tablet. Instead, Nokia decided to continue to focus on smartphones. And with sales of Windows RT tablets behind expectations, according to the supply chain manufacturers in Taiwan, Nokia is currently evaluating how many tablets it wants to order while it tries to come up with a marketing plan.
Nokia's original plan was to have the 10 inch tablet, powered by a Qualcomm S4 processor, built by Compal Electronics. Nokia wanted 200,000 units to test the market, but those plans were scrapped when the Microsoft Surface, uh, surfaced.

Nokia has already let slip 2 of it's Prototype designs and they look very good to me. but I think they should build a windows 8 tablet also because they have an Eco system of thousands upon thousands of PC Desktop/Laptop Business, Educational, PC games, and Web based TV, Movies, and Windows 8 Apps that are already available. A windows RT device may be cheaper to build but the windows 8 Tablets have the bigger ECO system .

totally agree!!! i mean manufacturer can squeeze the resolution restriction to 7/8" right? like HTC DNA with 1080p screen!!! that would be a perfect size!! hoping that microsoft will let the windows blue out soon so that nokia can start making with a hand friendly tablet!
