Photographs alleged to be of Nokia tablet prototype appear online
A <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289308==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/12/19/project.delayed.by.microsoft.surface.release/" rel='nofollow'>tablet</a> claimed to be Nokia's allegedly-shelved Windows RT device has been shown off in a set of recently-uploaded photographs. The images show the prototype slate, complete with Nokia branding on the rear and a 10.1-inch display, and suggests that Nokia has done a significant amount of work on the device before effectively ceasing its tablet efforts. <br />
<br />
The five photographs uploaded <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289309==http://section.cafe.naver.com/" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>Naver</em> seem to show the tablet as having a polycarbonate shell, something that Nokia is known for using in its devices. The connector on the side is also unusual, appearing to have a long plug that attaches to the tablet, as opposed to the microUSB used by many currently on the market. <br />
<br />
Other sources on the <em>WPCentral</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289310==http://forums.wpcentral.com/general-tablet-discussion/232724-unknown-nokia-windows-rt-tablet-prototype.html" rel='nofollow'>forum</a> claims that the tablet has a Tegra 3 processor running at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16-point multitouch, space for a SIM card, a USB port, and Windows RT as its operating system. Since the original source of the photographs and the forum-based specifications are not from Nokia itself, it is possible that these specifications are incorrect in some way. <br />
<br />
Earlier rumors of its development were reinforced by a Nokia design lead <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289311==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/03/15/nokia.officially.leaps.into.tablets/" rel='nofollow'>confirming</a> it was being worked on in an interview in March last year. Even though other <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289312==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/11/tablet.design.includes.kickstand.surface.style.key board/" rel='nofollow'>patent filings</a> related to the device have been uncovered, and CEO <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289313==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/04/operating.system.decision.forces.nokia.to.consider .any.option/" rel='nofollow'>Stephen Elop</a> talked about his company's willingness to look at Android as an operating system for the for the tablet in a later interview, the company is said to have all but given up on releasing a tablet at this moment in time.
