Nokia Windows 8 Tablet In The Works?

Nokia has become one of the major Windows Phone smartphone makers and now rumors indicate that the Finnish company will dive headlong into the tablet space as well, and launch a Windows 8-powered tablet.

Details of an Adidas app have been posted by an app designer with information on a proposal for a Nokia tablet app.

"Helped design and concept the Adidas micoach app proposal for the Nokia Tablet. The Tablet App intended to be an extension of coaches allowing them to build teams and monitor individual trainings for each athlete. The way that works is to connect the app to existing technology on Adidas products to read the workout data registered by cell chip implants. The app also tapped into the community allowing users to challenge each other by sending notifications to friends and their social feeds," notes Cargo Collective.

This is not the first time that rumors of a Nokia tablet are circling the tech space. Previous reports suggest that the company is working on a tablet with a 10.1-inch display, which is similar to Microsoft's Surface RT screen. The report also indicated that the tablet will arrive with HDMI and USB ports, alongside cellular connectivity. Rumors also hint that AT&T will be one of the first service providers to stock the Nokia tablets in the U.S.

"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.

Microsoft launched the Surface range of tablets running on the latest Windows RT and Windows Pro operating system; however, the tablets haven't received as much popularity as the company expected. Recent rumors also suggest that HTC will soon launch a Windows tablet.

The release date of a Windows-based Nokia tablet is not known, but many tablet enthusiasts will be hoping to lay hands on a new Windows tablet soon.
