Rumor: Nokia to introduce Windows 8 tablet at Mobile World Congress

Nokia Windows 8 Tablet

Nokia is 'all in' with Windows Phone, but what about Windows 8? It was way back last Spring that we heardĀ Nokia head of Design, Marko Ahtisaari, first let news slip of a possible tablet from Finland. Looks like those plans haven't completely been shelved as DigiTimes reports Nokia could unveil a 10-inch device in a few short months.

Word on the street is that Nokia is working closely with Microsoft, Qualcomm, and Compel Electronics to pick up developmenet of a Windows RT device. Rumor has it that plans were put on hold after Microsoft made a surprise announcement and introduced the Surface earlier this summer. The orignal plan involved introducing the tablet for a Q1 2013 appearance. Remember those tablet design patents we showed you back in mid-October?Ā 

The device is expected to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress late Februrary. Windows Phone Central will be there live to cover the event for you. And before you get your panties in a bunch, the image above is just a fan made render that has floated around the web. We don't really know what an Espoo tablet would look like.

Are you guys and gals interested in a Windows RT tablet from Nokia to pair with your Lumia 820 and 920? Or would you rather have it with an Intel inside?
