Image of Nokia Windows RT powered prototype tablet leaked

Nokia Windows RT prototype
Rumors have been around for some time about a Nokia branded Windows powered tablet. As recently as last month, there was some talk that this slate would be introduced at the same time that the Nokia EOS would be unveiled. That is going to tale place on Thursday, meaning that those hoping for a slab produced by the Finnish based manufacturer will be crossing their fingers tightly heading into the July 11th announcement.


Meanwhile, a member of the forum on Windows Phone Central posted a picture that he claims is of a prototype Nokia tablet, powered by Windows RT. The specs include a 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16point touchscreen, HDMI-Out, USB port and a SIM slot. The poster states that Nokia pulled the device because of the dated Tegra 3 silicon. There still are questions about the legitimacy of the picture. Note the lack of a rear camera, something that is strange considering Nokia's heavy focus on cameras these days.


Just the other day, a Nokia Lumia road-map of sorts mentioned two tablets in the works. One has an 8.5 inch screen and the other has a 10.5 inch panel and is 8.5mm thin. Both will be offered in Green, Black, Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow and White and will feature aluminum casing. The camera on the tablets is said to feature Nokia's new Zoom technology which is supposed to be part of the Finnish OEM's media event on Thursday.
