Nokia Windows RT tablet to launch in September, sources suggest

While many companies are turning away from Windows RT, it seems Nokia is still looking to launch its own RT tablet device in September.

An image from Chinese website Digiwo purports to show the back of a Verizon-bound red Nokia tablet, that matches the sort of dimensions we saw in a previous Nokia tablet leak in July. The rounded edges and colours appear to match those of Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices, making this look very much like it's part of the Lumia design family.

The previous rumours, as well as today's addition, point to a 10.1-inch tablet with a 1080p display. There's the suggestion of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, making for a quad-core Windows RT tablet, along with LTE support, which the pictured device seems to suggest with it's Verizon 4G LTE branding. There's also talk of a keyboard attachment containing additional storage and battery.

The Verge adds to the mix, reporting that "sources" have detailed that Nokia is working on a tablet codenamed Vanquish and it's looking at a 26 September launch date with a special event in New York.

There's no word of confirmation from Nokia on the tablet, although the company has previously expressed interest in tablet devices. With companies such as Asus looking to step away from the Windows RT platform, Nokia will have to bring a world of unique innovative features to its tablet, as it does with Windows Phone, to get it off the ground.

We will keep you posted.
