Nokia said to be working on Windows 8 tablet

Quad-core Qualcomm, 10-inch screen

Nokia is said to be working on a promising Windows 8 tablet slated for launch in Q4 2012 at the earliest.

According to Digitimes, suppliers are already spilling the beans on the new tablet and the spec looks interesting. It will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm chip, probably a Snapdragon S4 series part and the tablet is said to feature a 10-inch screen.

There is no word on screen resolution, but it is safe to assume that Nokia will have to go for a high-res screen if it is to stand a chance against Appleā€™s new iPad. Nokia is reportedly planning to outsource production to Compal and the new tablet will be churned out in 200,000 unit batches, which sounds rather conservative.

With Android struggling to hold its own against iOS in the tablet space, we can only hope that Redmond and Nokia will have a bit more luck.
