Pictures of Microsoft's canceled Nokia Mercury tablet emerge

Microsoft canceled more than one device while its mobile division was active. We've already talked about the Lumia 960 flagship smartphone and the Surface Mini tablet. However, we haven't yet reported anything about Nokia Mercury, a slate that should have been released in 2014-2015 with Windows RT on board.

Some press pictures of the Nokia Mercury surfaced a long time ago, but now we get to take a look at the real thing. A few live pictures of the canceled tablet has just been published by Italian publication WindowsBlogItalia.

The slate was powered by an Intel Atom Z3795 chipset, coupled with 1-2GB RAM. However, instead of Windows RT, the leaked prototype unit is running Windows 8, a much better choice at that time.

Nokia Mercury had never received the green light from Microsoft, so it remains one of those devices that you wish you could be given the opportunity to buy (or not).

Looks smaller than the 2520. Maybe it's good they cancelled it since people were having such a s**tfit over Windows 8.

I'd love a Windows tablet from Nokia but RT wasn't Windows

It was supposed to run full Windows 8, not RT. Says so in the article. But Micro$h*t canceled it.
