That the Nokia is working on a Windows tablet, we have known since a few weeks already. Ok, maybe didn’t “know” as we weren’t 100 percent certain, but we heard some whispers and we saw a photo. The same image has just surfaced again, however, this time with a list of specs confirming previous rumors. The device, codenamed Sirius, departs from the traditional black and white color options and will be available in multiple hues, one of them being red obviously. The tablet will certainly make a cute couple with one of Nokia Lumia Windows 8 Phones.
10.1-inch Nokia Sirius Tablet with Windows RT
The Nokia Sirius will allegedly feature a 10.1-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display with enhanced outdoor readability. The tablet is rumored to be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which will possibly be aided by 2 GB of RAM. The device will offer users 32 GB of internal memory with microSD slot for storage expansion. The OS of choice will be Windows RT.
Nokia’s tablet will supposedly come with a 6-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel user-facing sensor. The exact capacity of the battery was not mentioned, but from what we heard it should be good for up to 10 hours of constant use. The device will also offer Micro HDMI and Micro USB ports and will be LTE-enabled. The Nokia Sirius is said to be thinner that Apple’s current iPad, however, it will cost more or less the same.
It was previously speculated that AT&T would carry the new Nokia tablet, but apparently a leaked photo reveals Verizon’s logo on the back. The tablet is expected to be announced one month from today exactly, on September 26th in NYC.
