Nokia is all set to unveil a new 10.1-inch tablet resembling the Lumia design late next month. The tablet appeared just a week back in leaked photos, now some more details emerged through The Verge. The tablet will resemble Nokia Lumia Smartphone design and will compete with the popular iPad. The Sirius Tablet will be thinner and lighter than the current iPad.
Nokia Sirius will run on the Windows RT operating system, this is surprising given the recent news of OEMs backing out of the Windows RT platform, and the recent $900 million write off Microsoft took for Windows RT tablets and that led to the forced resignation of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Asus and some other OEMs have decided not to produce Windows RT based products recently. Looks like all these reasons are not enough for Nokia to put off any plans on Windows RT, it decided to release the tablet in the next month. Only time will tell whether Nokia can pull this off or not.
Nokia Sirius leaked specifications reveal that it is powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, and is rumored to include improved outdoor visibility. Nokia is also putting a 6 megapixel camera at the rear and a 2 megapixel camera at the front. Other specifications include a micro SD slot for expanding the memory upto 32GB, a Micro HDMI connector, a Micro USB port, and a powerful battery under the hood to provide juice for atleast 10 hours.
According to the report Nokia is expected to unveil this Sirius tablet on September 26th at an event in New York.
