The Windows RT fan base jumped with anticipation with leaked images out of China which seem to show the next Windows RT tablet. The Nokia Windows RT tablet could arrive as early as late September
The leaked tablet images by Nokia showed up on a Chinese site Digiwo, and this red Windows RT tablet is 10.1 inches and has the Verizon, Windows RT, and Nokia logos on it. While no price has been placed on the tablet, this could be what Windows RT needs in the upcoming months.
More Powerful Processor Included?
Some of the initial leaks on the new Windows RT include a Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. The 1080p resolution with a detachable keyboard, wide viewing angle, 32GB storage in the keyboard, and an extra USB port on the back of the device make it compelling. In addition, USB 3.0 and Micro HDMI ports have been spotted on the unit.
Faster and Updated Windows RT
This vast improvement in a Windows RT tablet is huge for Windows RT fans. It gives them additional storage, the ports they need to do work, plenty of storage built into the keyboard, and a much faster processor. This could be what it takes to get Windows RT units into people’s hands come the end of the year.
One of the questions that comes up is why Nokia? Nokia has designed high-end Windows Phones for Microsoft on the Windows Phone platform, and now this new Windows RT tablet looks like a hit. It clearly gives users the features and power they were missing in the initial Windows RT tablet, and has the sexy styling and looks that Nokia is known for in the design field.
This tablet is expected to be headlined at the Nokia event later in September, where Microsoft and Nokia will be displaying new phones and tablets. The leaked images make sense since these would need to be manufactured today, and gears up the holiday season for a possible Windows RT second generation product for store shelves. This is exactly what Microsoft and Windows RT needs and needs to be priced competitively.
