Cancelled Nokia Windows RT tablet surfaces in forum photos

Nokia logoNokia had a Windows RT tablet that never will be, and alleged images of the device recently cropped up in forums, according to a report from The Verge on Tuesday. The tablet included a magnetic battery connector similar to those used on Apple’s MacBooks.

While Nokia’s tablet was never officially announced, hints of its existence ebbed and flowed throughout 2012, including some from Nokia’s own CEO. Hardware manufacturers pursued Windows RT aggressively at first, but the hamstrung OS left many users cold with its lack of Outlook, among other issues. The Windows 8.1 update will add Outlook back to RT and give it a few more business-friendly features.

Many companies have since stepped away from RT; even Microsoft is unloading its Surface RT tablets at heavily discounted prices. The Verge reported from unnamed sources back in December that Nokia’s tablet would include two USB ports, a cover with a supplementary battery, and a 10-hour main battery.

The tablet in the photos has USB ports, an HDMI port, and an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, as well as a SIM slot that likely would have afforded an LTE connection. The RT version is no longer in the works, but Nokia is reportedly working up a full Windows 8 version instead.
