Nokia working on Windows 8 tablet, cancelled plans for 10-inch Windows RT slate (images here)
We have already seen images of the device leak out, but now another interesting piece of information comes up suggesting the RT tablet has been cancelled in favor of a full-blown Windows 8-based Nokia tablet. The information comes courtesy of anonymous sources speaking for The Verge.
The original Nokia Windows RT tablet prototype is shown running on a Tegra 3 1.3GHz quad-core chip with 2GB of RAM, HDMI-OUT, USB Port, and SIM card slot. Of course, at this point in time it's unlikely for Nokia to release a Tegra 3 based device as newer and more powerful chips are available. The model name for the scrapped device is nVidia P1001. Funnily enough, the prototype allegedly ended up in the hands of a leakster as a gift from “someone who works at Nokia.” We can’t verify, but the images of the device definitely look credible.
Good news remains that despite cancelling this particular tablet, Nokia is still working on a Windows 8 slate.
