Rumors of a Nokia Windows RT tablet have been making rounds frequently and now a leaked image shows the tablet in red color with Verizon branding.
The tablet market has been flooded with an array of tablets. Customers have access to a range of slates running on various operating systems such as Android, iOS, Windows and BlackBerry. However, Nokia doesn't have any tablet on offer and many tablet enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting for the Finnish company to join the party with its own offering.
The latest leaked image of the Nokia Windows RT tablet comes courtesy of Chinese website Digi-Wo. This is not the first time that rumors of a Nokia Windows RT tablet have emerged online. Previous rumors indicate that a 2.15 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is expected to power the device and the purported Nokia tablet is also speculated to have 32GB of internal storage. Rumors also suggest that the slate will also have the option of a removable keyboard, similar to the Surface Touch/Type Cover keypad.
Previous reports speculate that Nokia is working on a tablet with a 10.1-inch display, which is similar to Microsoft's Surface RT screen. Rumors also indicate that the upcoming Nokia tablet will arrive with HDMI and USB ports, alongside cellular connectivity. Some reports also reveal that the purported Nokia tablet will run on Windows RT 8.1. While previous rumors have claimed that the Nokia tablet will head to AT&T, however, the latest leaked image shows the tablet with a Verizon logo.
"Our sources have revealed that the Finnish company is planning to build a small number of the tablets initially, with a view to potentially building a Windows 8 device later. Nokia's first tablet will run on an ARM chip with Microsoft's new Windows RT operating system," reported The Verge in December 2012.
Nokia is said to be planning an event for Sept. 26 - 27 this year so we hope that the tablet will make an appearance then. The company has not confirmed that event and it remains silent on a Nokia Windows RT tablet, so we will have to wait until Nokia makes an official announcement to launch the tablet.
