A couple of months ago we saw photos of what was a cancelled Nokia Windows RT tablet. We thought after the failure of Windows RT the notion of a Nokia tablet was a preposterous idea. It appears that Nokia has still not given up on the idea of a Windows RT tablet. Windows Phone Central is reporting that Nokia could be planning an event in New York on September 26-27 where it could launch its tablet.

Now, this news still is not 100 percent, but in recent times there have been murmurs about a Nokia tablet. This includes a GFXBench result that showed a tablet named Nokia RX-114 which ran the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, with the Adreno 330 GPU and ran a weird resolution of 1371×771 pixels.
Furthermore, the report suggests that it could be an 11-inch tablet that would be available in Nokia’s signature colorful palette. More interestingly, the report also states that with Windows 8.1 going RTM sometime late in August, it would seem appropriate for Nokia to launch the tablet in September with the Windows update.
Additionally, the report suggests that Nokia plans on having a major release every quarter and its phablet will probably launch in November after Microsoft distributes the GDR3 build of Windows Phone that will add support for 1080p displays. Reportedly, the first working prototypes of this device are now being tested.
On the whole, the idea of launching a Windows RT tablet may sound stupid, but it could work out well for Nokia if done well, because the app ecosystem for WinRT apps is certainly booming and the Windows Store has crossed 100,000 applications. Lot of big applications like Facebook have also landed officially on the platform and it seems to be slowly gaining momentum from the developer front, at the least.
