It’s the rumor that never ends. While it’s been a few months since our last good Nokia tablet rumor, but the latest rumblings are that the Finnish manufacturer and close Microsoft partner plans to announce a Windows RT tablet during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which will take place February 25-28, 2013.
According to the report, the device will feature a 10-inch screen and run Windows RT, the ARM-based version of Windows 8. It will also be powered by a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor. Nokia intendeds to dip its toes in the water with the production of 200,000 units, with more to come if it is successful. The device is expected to be made available through AT&T, among other stores, so a 4G connection probably isn’t out of the question. Plus, it would give the Nokia tablet a leg-up on the Surface, which the Finnish manufacturer tried to stay clear of by delaying the development of its own tablet.
Of course, the source of the rumor is DigiTimes, so take all of this with a grain of salt. That being said, even Nokia’s own CEO, Stephen Elop, has teased the device on occasion, so a Mobile World Congress launch isn’t out of the question.
