It turns out that the alleged Nokia’s full-size Windows RT tablet codenamed Sirius is not alleged anymore. The device was semi-confirmed by Microsoft-watcher Paul Thurrott who posted a photo of the tablet along with a list of potential specs. Previous rumors suggested that the Sirius might go on sale some time in September and by the looks of it, indeed it may happen. The device leaked earlier this summer and now has surfaced again, which clearly indicates that Nokia has something in store for us.
Nokia Sirius 10.1 Windows RT Tablet
The Nokia Sirius is expected to come with a 10.1-inch 1080p Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display with enhanced readability in direct sunlight. The slate is said to be powered by a quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor paired with 2 GB of RAM. Nokia has always paid a lot of attention to camera in smartphones and from what we hear it plans to continue to do so with its tablet. The Sirius is believed to pack a mighty 6.7-megapixel rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics. Thurrott claims that the tablet will provide deep photographic experience thanks to “unique companion experiences with Nokia apps.”
The device’s battery is believed to deliver up to 10 hours of usage time on one charge. The Nokia Sirius will sport LTE radio and will runs Windows RT, which means that the only apps you will be able to install are the ones you get from Windows Store. The tablet will weigh around 1.3 pounds and be about 0.35 inches thick. The Sirius looks like an interesting device, but it might come with a killer price. The tablet is expected to cost $499, which certainly is not cheap.
