Nokia has been covered in the new multiple times when it comes to Windows tablets. While we're still yet to see a Nokia branded tablet hit the shelves around the world, a Nokia "Sirius" Windows RT tablet has now been leaked. Better still, it looks like a giant Lumia.
The 10.1-inch tablet is reported to be launching soon, according to The Verge sources familiar with Nokia plans. As well as the distinctive look, the tablet is believed to be both lighter and thinner than the current Apple iPad. Running at full HD resolution (1920x1080), you'll also be looking at a 6MP and 2MP camera set up for Skype calls, general video capture and the odd photo.
As with any Lumia product, one would expect a degree of personalisation regarding colours? The body of the product will indeed be coloured, leading us to assume the company will offer different variants (possibly utilising the same colour palette that's been used for Lumia Windows Phones). Built on Snapdragon's 800 CPU and sporting 2GB of RAM, it'll be a speedy little monster.
The Verge also notes that Nokia is aiming for a high amount of brightness with the display for outdoor use, as well as 10 hours battery life with LTE connectivity. Speaking of connections, physical ports will include microSD (extending the 32GB internal storage), Micro-HDMI and Micro-USB support. Much like Microsoft's own Surface tablets (and other Windows 8 tablets), Nokia will be shipping a keyboard accessory with the "Sirius."
So what about pricing? Its reported the tablet will be listed with a tag that's in-line with the iPad and plans reveal Nokia won't be looking to undercut initially. We'll hopefully have more information on the tablet at a confirmed launch event in New York on September 26th. Just in time for Windows 8.1. Nokia's 6-inch "phablet" not large enough? Here's a potential Windows RT solution.
