Nokia Windows 8.1 Tablet "Sirius" leak
An image of Nokia's rumoured first Windows 8.1 tablet as a code name "Sirius" with 10.1 inch, HD 1080p screen display has appeared on the internet.
Arguably the most interesting of these is the Nokia 'Sirius', the Finnish phone maker's first tablet. This device has been rumoured for a while, and is expected to launch alongside the Nokia Lumia 1520 tablet on 26 September.
Assuming this leak is accurate, and we have no reason to believe it is not, you won't have to wait until the end of the month to find out what the tablet will offer. It reportedly will run Microsoft's Windows 8.1 RT operating system and will have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 10.1in 1920x1080 full HD display.
Taking tips from Nokia's Lumia phone lineup, the tablet reportedly will also feature a 6.7MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, built-in LTE support and will be available in red, complete with a "multi-function cover with keyboard".
That's all we know right now, but the Nokia Sirius is likely to make its debut within the next few weeks, priced at around $499.
These include: the 8in Dell Venue tablet which will likely feature an Intel Atom Bay Trail chip and a $299 price tag; the Lenovo 7in and 10.1in Intel Atom Bay Trail tablets, the Miix 8 and Miix 2; and the Microsoft Surface Mini, which will reportedly feature an 8in screen and a Qualcomm processor. We expect to find out more about these tablets over the next few weeks.
