PanARMENIAN.Net - Reports surrounding Nokia's Sirius tablet continue to surface. This time, a new leak shows what the slate will look like including its key specifications, International Business Times said.
According to a report from Supersite for Windows' Paul Thurrott, Nokia is among the upcoming tablets to feature the Windows interface. These tablets will hit stores around fall. What is interesting is that Nokia has already been included in the list without official confirmations or announcement yet.
The report also revealed a number of specs the Nokia slate will offer.
Reported specs include: 10.1-inch IPS full-HD (1920x1080 pixels) display, up to 10 hours of battery life and a quad-core Qualcomm 8974 (ARM) processor. The tablet will weigh around 590 grams or 1.3 pounds.
Some sources also say that the Nokia Sirius Windows RT tablet will have a 6.7-megapixel camera. It comes with Carl Zeiss optics and preloaded apps from Nokia. The site cited that the slate will feature a multi-function cover with keyboard starting at $499. This is slightly pricey compared to other tablets. Nokia's Sirius will be an optimized version of Windows.
The image leak shows that the Sirius tablet bears resemblance with Nokia's Lumia line. The tablet features a rear camera on the upper left corner. Sources believe the slate's back is made of glass. Nonetheless, the image leak does not provide a clear view of the tablet. People will have to wait for official photos or better image leaks to see how the tablet will really look like.
Prior image leaks also noted how the prototype of Nokia Sirius Windows RT tablet looks just like Lumia smartphones. Nokia is expected to reveal more about the slate and its specs in the coming weeks. Some even say that the company will release the tablet at the end of September. There is still no official confirmation about that.
Nokia's Lumia line has earned praises especially for their display and shooting capacity. If Nokia can include these in their tablet then the slate can be a standout. Tablet competition has grown stiffer throughout the months, companies to offer more than just a portable device.
