Nokia Reportedly Working on 10.1-inch Windows RT Tablet with Battery-Equipped Keyboard Cover
Quoting information provided by sources familiar with Nokia's plans, The Verge claims that Nokia is working on a 10.1-inch Windows RT tablet. While rumors of a Nokia Windows RT tablet have surfaced as early as March this year, the latest report reveals some specifications of the device.
The Nokia Windows RT slate is said to be equipped with an ARM chip, HDMI and USB ports. It also has cellular connectivity and AT&T will be among the first carriers to sell it in the U.S. Sources told The Verge that one of the key aspects that Nokia will be focusing on is a battery-equipped cover.
Designed to envelop the tablet like a book, the cover is alleged to incorporate a keyboard and a kickstand. The cover also sports a built-in battery that will extend the battery life of the tablet. The main battery is reported to be able to last up to 10 hours, and features fast charging which allows the battery capacity to reach 50% within a short period of time.
Nokia plans to produce a small number of the Windows RT tablets initially, and is considering the possibility of building a Windows 8 device. DigiTimes previously pointed out that the tablet will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2013.
