Only yesterday we reported that a mysterious Nokia device passed the FCC and as quickly as today that device was spotted in the wild. Although many expected it to be a phone, we had a hunch that it’s a tablet or a mid. Well, we are pleased to inform that it’s a tablet, but you can call it a MID. The Nokia Tablet is a slider device with a 800 x 480 screen, 128MB DDR Samsung internal memory, FM transmitter, and Maemo 5.
About six weeks ago Nokia and Intel signed a partnership which will see both giants work on the next-gen mobile devices. Today we learn that this Nokia Tablet is powered by an OMAP3 ARM processed with frequency scaling report developed by Texas Instruments which is very surprising. Besides that the sliding tablet unveils a slick QWERTY keyboard similar to the one found at the Nokia N810, 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, LED flash, autofocus which shoots pics at a maximum resolution of 2608 x 1966 pixels.
In the FCC filling the tablet is slated as Nokia RX-51, but other details are scarce. In the leaks the Nokia Tablet is rumored to feature WiFi 802.11b/g and an accelerometer.
We are very disappointed by this tablet because it brings nothing new. Consumers (and us) would like to see something new because they can already choose from a plethora of sliders, and we think that Nokia should do something else in order to draw some attention. The Nokia RX-51 Tablet doesn’t impress us in any way, but the key may be the Maemo 5 platform. Let’s just wait for more information before we jump into conclusions.
P.S. This device might be the Nokia N900 as you can spot “Nokia NSeries” on the packaging. Or it could be the Rover.
