Now here is a rumor I fancy, the white knight of Mirosoft’s Windows Phone platform to be the white knight for their grown up OS? Say it isn’t so! Well, as of right now, the rumors are flying, speculations are high and the wish list is betting on Mobile World Congress.
According to Digitimes, Nokia has a Windows RT tablet well in the works and ready to be unveiled to the world at MWC this year. Although this is a long standing rumor, Nokia’s sudden lack of interest in CES, and some inside information on Marko Ahtisaari’s tablet efforts earlier this year, its all conventionally making sense.
But wait a minute, would I even want a “Lumia” tablet? I am not so sure, there really isn’t much wind in my sale for Windows RT, and what ever this is left, the Surface does a wonderful job at capturing the rest. Could this Nokia effort be as wasteful as Surface was? I sure would hate to see another beautiful piece of hardware subjected to an “in between” solution that really didn’t need to exist. So, either Nokia slaps a real processor on this fairy device, or Microsoft makes Windows RT a bit more functional for the village idiot. Only time will tell!
