Nokia to Unveil 10-Inch Windows RT Tablet in February?
Nokia is reportedly in talks with Microsoft, Qualcomm and Compal Electronics to resume development of a 10-inch Windows RT tablet which would be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, says DigiTimes.
Nokia originally planned to develop a 10-inch Windows RT tablet equipped with Qualcomm's S4 processor in first-quarter 2012, with Compal to undertake ODM production and initial shipments of 200,000 units to test the market, the sources indicated. But because Microsoft later announced Surface, and the market for Windows 8/RT tablets needed to be proven, Nokia internally focused on smartphones, and delayed the development of the 10-inch Windows RT tablet, the sources pointed out.
As Microsoft Surface sales have been below expectations, Nokia is said to still be evaluating volume and marketing plans.
