There’s no doubt that Nokia is eventually going to release a Windows 8 tablet. The latest rumor pins it for a Q4 2012 release. DigiTimes reports a 10-inch tablet with a dual-core processor. The Verge says the processor will most likely be the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, which we previewed during CES.
Nokia is expected to outsource production of the 10-inch Windows 8 tablet to Compal Electronics. The first batch of shipments is estimated at 200,000 units.
It’s way too early to get excited for this tablet if it’s expected late in the year. With the new iPad releasing in just a few days, maybe it isn’t such a bad idea for Nokia to wait.
