Report : Nokia Will Announce Windows Tablet At Their Event In NYC On September 26-27
Nokia will hold a two-day event in New York on September 26 and 27. According to Windows Phone Central, no details were spilled as to the nature or topic of the event, but one obvious candidate is a Nokia’s tablet.
The company has traditionally used New York to unveil major new Lumia devices. In September 2012, Nokia launched the Lumia 920 in New York, and earlier this month, the Lumia 1020 made its debut in the city. With a full lineup of Lumia phones now up for sale, the time may be ripe for a long-awaited tablet.
In May, Jo Harlow, executive vice president of smart devices for Nokia, also teased the notion, saying: “We’re very interested in tablets and that’s an area we’re looking at.”
Multiple sources suggests that Nokia is currently testing a tablet among different carriers, If that’s true then company could coincide the launch of a tablet with the release of Windows 8.1.
The site also claims that they have received a description for the Nokia’s tablet that suggests a Nokia Lumia phone like design with “bright colours and rounded corners”. The rumoured tablet is expected to feature an 11-inch display.
Recently gfxbench.com leaked the above image of the benchmark results, which suggested that the alleged Nokia RX-114 tablet would be powered by a quad-core processor with Adreno 330 GPU graphics processor and is expected to run on Windows RT.
Earlier this month, The Verge said that Nokia reportedly had plans to develop a 10-inch tablet outfitted with Windows RT, but the company has decided to nix it in favour of one running the full version of Windows 8.
Now when the event is already lined up on September 26-27, we could certainly guess the launch.
